For more than 3 centuries now, critical studies into William Shakespeare’s Hamlet has questioned a wide variety of people with a range of divergent perspectives and interpretations from which have led to contrasting world views. Good day teachers and students of Amity College. My name is Adem Akpinar and today I will explain how my reading of the Shakespearean tragedy, ‘Hamlet’ has contributed to a greater understanding of the world that surrounds me. With the reoccurrence of universal themes such as mortality, revenge and corruption, hamlet effectively connects with modern society and is evident through viewing the contemporary problems that where occurring in the Elizabethan era which continue to exist in today’s society. The reason why Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, has been studied through the ages is because of the universal ideas it portrays that are evident in every individual such as the need for power, revenge, wealth and status.
The concept of mortality is a recurring idea through Shakespeare’s tragedy, Hamlet and continues to resonate in contemporary society. In the aftermath of his father’s murder, hamlet becomes obsessed with the idea of death, and over the course of the play, he views death from many perspectives. This is seen during hamlets famous soliloquy in Act 3, Scene 3, as he states, “to be or not to be”. Hamlet begins to questions his own death, as he repeatedly contemplates whether or not suicide is a morally legitimate action in an unbearably painful world. However, hamlet fears that if he commits suicide, he will be faced with eternal suffering in the afterlife due to his Christian religious beliefs. Here we see a clash between hamlets religious beliefs and his thoughts of suicide. Hamlets fear of eternal pain in the afterlife leads him to endure and fight the injustice in which he is faced with. Here, hamlet brings to light problems contemporary society is still faced with hundreds of years after the Elizabethan era. The problem, illustrated by Shakespeare, is the problem of giving up. Through reading hamlet, I have also learnt to endure through my hardships as hamlet has done to his as well as not quitting until I achieve my target. Therefore, my reading of the Shakespearean tragedy, hamlet, has contributed to a greater understanding of the world in which I live in.
since death is both the cause and the consequence of revenge, it is intimately tied to the theme of revenge and justice
