Before Hamlet’ s madness and Claudius picture whose smile hides evil can be traced to Queen Gertrude. The late King is described as a Greek God whose eyes could command like the God of war. Hamlets father was a combination of kingly qualities “ Where every god did seem to set his seal” (Act 3, scene 4) In contrast to the late King Gertrude should look at her present husband who is like “ Here is your husband; like a mildewed ear. ” (Act 3, scene 4, 65) ‘ Have you eyes? ’ Eyes signify that it sees and perceives is not reality for the hidden lost innocence is yet to be restored.
Hamlet is wrong in stating that “ You cannot call it to love; for at your age” (Act 3 scene 4, 69) for when it comes to the matter of the heart, no individual can control emotions. For Hamlet, this love paralyzed Gertrude who knew not the difference between her two men. The word ‘ judgment’ , enfolds the idea that every individual would have his judgment day as foretold in the Bible. How the comparison of Hamlets two speeches mirror the interrelation of events?
I feel the real emotional outrage seen in Hamlet; as he was unable to confront the fact that his mother was part of the horrendous deed. The psychological aspect that father, mother, and son form a triangle and every individual is an element in that triangle. For Hamlet, this triangle was broken and the only particle that remained was himself. Hamlets madness is the personification of every individual’ s cry for contentment. The confrontation with Gertrude portrayed Hamlet anger.
maybe, in reality, he was unprepared to confront his mother and maybe by killing Claudius he would make his mother cry tears of blood thus Gertrude undergoing the pain Hamlet’ s father underwent of being murdered. Hamlet’ s rage is only external but inwardly he was psychologically dead-why? For once his father was dead perhaps he had the notion that his death was evitable. Manly characteristics do not permit the tears of fright and escaping from reality. Hamlet’ s promise to the ghost is mirrored in every ghastly act and incident including meeting with his mother.
