Description:

This paper examines how an understanding of the magnitude of the themes and ideas contained within Shakespeare's "Hamlet" presents a challenge to analysis and investigation. In particular, it looks at how one of the most resonant themes is the motivating and transforming power of death and how to truly understand Hamlet's nature and motivations one must look not only at his behavior but also his avowals, his inner confusion so evident in his moments of doubt and dismay.

From the Paper:

"Much of the play works in more than one realm, connecting the thoughts and deeds of the characters with a larger idea or theme. An example of this microcosm/macrocosm nature of the play is Hamlet's soliloquy in Act IV, at the conclusion of Scene 4. This is a definitive turning point for him, a watershed in his transformation from an unsure, vacillating pawn of intrigue and fate to a man able to act with resolve, consequences be damned. The scene opens with Fortinbras, a man diametrically opposed to Hamlet in character and action, a man whose intentions are not secret or hidden, whose progress and aim are open and declared."
