Could it be Craziness?
William Shakespeare, author of Hamlet acts upon his feelings, meaning he uses words to portray his uncertainty of actions and inability to decide how to cope with the problems in his face. Shakespeare makes this obvious in his figurative language and plot throughout the play. Metaphors and Alliteration are the figurative languages used in this play along with the motifs deception and honesty. Shakespeare always makes a love story along with the death of a handful of characters. Just that alone gives you examples of what is going to happen in the story.
In the play Hamlet, he cleverly disguises his figurative language so it’s hard to find any because it’s not right there in your face. One metaphoric way is shows this is in the famous line Shakespeare wrote “.to be or not to be” Act III Scene 1. Hamlet feels upset about all the madness going on in his life. The death of his father is troubling him to the point he thinks he sees his ghost. This also another way he is trying to fool people to make them think he is just going crazy. Hamlet also thinks is mother has some involvement in it also. The line “to be or not be”, shows that he is questioning is life and is figuring out if he wasn’t to do something crazy to his self
In the play Shakespeare also shows alliterations in his speech he shows that when something big is about to happens he uses this figurative language. Like when Ophelia is going crazy after she tries to calm Hamlet down because he is going crazy about his mom, the queen, and his uncle the king.
Then Claudius tries to poising him. “Laertes: It is here, Hamlet. Hamlet, thou art slain; No medicine in the world can do thee good. In thee there is not half an hour of life. The treacherous instrument is in thy hand, Unbated and envenom'd. The foul practice Hath turn'd itself on me. Lo, here I lie, Never to rise again. Thy mother's poison'd. I can no more. The King, the King's to blame.” Act 5, sc 2, lines 270-279.
