This paper conducts a character analysis of Hamlet, Laertes and Fortinbras' characters in relation to the events and circumstances that happened in the play "Hamlet." Furthermore, this character analysis is accomplished using the comparative essay analysis, where the researcher gives a causal relationship among the three characters, further discovering the actions, behavior, and motivations of each through their differences and similarities with each other. Texts from Shakespeare's original play and critiques on the play's character are also used in support of the claims that are presented in the paper.
From the Paper:"The play "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare has a story that revolves around the main themes of revenge and search for the truth. Shakespeare's male characters, in particular, are portrayed somewhat villainously because of the element of revenge inherent in each character's motivations in the play. Among the male characters in the play, the characters of Hamlet, Laertes, and Fortinbras emerge as the most remarkable among the numerous character in Shakespeare's piece. Many characteristics are shared among these three primary male characters. The first characteristic is that they possess the vitality of their youth, and the second one is that all of them face the world in an idealistic and somewhat naive perspective. Their being young, naive, and idealistic are the main reasons why, throughout the play, they have resorted to radical actions and behavior that will cause either their victory or downfall."
