What Hamlet puts in the concept of “man”

The tragedy of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet, Prince of Denmark” – the most famous play of the English playwright. Each time, in its own way, experienced the situations and problems of this tragedy. For four centuries it has served as a mirror of humanity, in which new generations see their features and characteristics.

It seems to me that many people of the current generation who see the surrounding lies, untruth, dream of other, fair relations, but often feel that they are powerless.

Thomas Moore placed his ideal state on an unknown island and could not indicate the path to it. He called it Utopia, which in Greek means: “Land that does not exist.” And the more brightly for Ura Utopia, the darker became for him the surrounding reality. “The

whole world is a prison,” Mor wrote. Hamlet repeats the same words.

Hamlet sees people with all his being. The vision of the world is due to his spirituality. He calls man “the beauty of the universe, the crown of all living things.” In my opinion, this is absolutely the correct conclusion. But in the royal castle it is surrounded by rude and self-satisfied people. There is no place for sincerity, feelings deep and open, trust in human nature.

All this gave rise to deep sorrow in Hamlet, painful discontent with oneself, anxiety. He easily passes from one mood to another. Throughout the tragedy, Hamlet is ready to fight evil. His strength lies in the fact that he raised the question of the injustice of the surrounding world, which he calls a prison, and how he could and how he knew how to expose this world.

In front of me, Hamlet appeared humane and courageous.

The life of Hamlet is the misery of thought. And each person should make his own moral choice. Moral choice – this is the main problem, growing out of the fate of Hamlet. But everyone has a choice. What is the choice depends on himself. And so – from generation to generation. It seems to me that man’s morality has also entered the concept of Hamlet about him.

On Hamlet laid the mission to “restore the connection

of times” the ghost of the deceased father. At the beginning of the tragedy, Hamlet meets with him and learns that his father was killed by his uncle, the present King. He is overcome by rage and thirst for revenge. He decides to take revenge on the murderer and all the traitors. Hamlet does not want to put up with what there is even a drop of evil. He questioned the fairness of the laws by which the world lives. “The connection of times has disintegrated.” People do not seek the connections of the past with the present, they are forgetful and live only “today”. Hamlet is seeking the connection of phenomena, he is only concerned with the needs of the world, and not only with his own destiny. But Hamlet is a gentle and impressionable person. Therefore, he can not immediately deal with all. He needs traitors to realize their guilt. Hamlet does not just revenge, he restores justice, so he does not kill Claudius, when he realized his brutal crime. He managed to wake his conscience, deprived him of peace. This is a huge victory, this is the verdict to the King. But Claudius continues his dastardly deed: he sends Hamlet to England, hoping to kill him there. And Hamlet goes to prove to everyone that good is stronger, more skillful, smarter than evil.

Hamlet dies, but before he dies, Claudia, the murderer of his father, manages to kill. Hamlet three times asks Horace’s faithful friend to “breathe in a harsh world” to “tell the story” about him.

So having suffered, he will bind himself to the world.
