    Hamlet Appearance Vs Reality Claudius And Polonius

    In Act I Scene II of Hamlet, Gertrude asks Hamlet, ?Why seems it so particular with thee?? Since death is common to all, she asks, why does Hamlet seem to be making such a particular fuss about his father?s death? He replies, ?Seems Madam? Nay it is. I know not seems.? It is not a question of seeming, but being: His black mourning clothes are simply a true representation of his deep unhappiness. With this line, Shakespeare develops the theme of appearance versus reality and that he intends to stress Hamlet?s dedication to truth in contrast to appearances which serve others, notably

    Hamlet

    Throughout William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the author’s utilization of soliloquies aides in developing the protagonist’s character. In Hamlet’s soliloquy found in Act II, Scene II, Shakespeare’s choice of words and imagery reveal his struggle to act with certainty. Furthermore, Hamlet’s contemplative and philosophical disposition is evident in his marrying of thought with action; a characteristic that is not so much seen in his contemporaries. Finally, Hamlet’s resolution in proclaiming, “The play’s the thing…” (591) exposes a logical intellect that often appears to vanish in the company of othe
