Acters making her final mad scene seem silly and ut Midnight Eyes of place Do not let the narrative take her agency away Emphasize her inner turmoil Build up her ending madnessOn a related note if scene 31 between Hamlet and Ophelia didn t make you cry I m vetoing it You are supposed to care about these two characters both separately and together You are supposed to feel bothf their pains You are not not not supposed to My Girlfriend S Boyfriend only care for Hamlet becausef his blinding angst Sweets over his girlfriend Give this moment to Ophelia Give her the agency she deserves Give the villains characterization too It is so so important to get Gertrude right Onef the best scenes in this entire show to me is the closet scene between Gertrude and Hamlet But you have to make Gertrude s character interesting Her pain has to matter as much as anyone else s In general y all suck at portraying Claudius He s

Characters The Tragicall Historie f Hamlet, Prince f Denmark
"You Read The Play It Possible That "read the play it possible that the play Is it possible that had nly read the first 4 scenes and Hamlet already became Inked Magic onef my favorite male characters ever YES Why He s constantly wearing black and monologuing about how literally everything is hard and making everything dramatic then it is is so ME And this is considered a tragedy which in some ways it is but I found it so funny probably because I have a dark soul and I will definitely reread this at any given moment War of peaceI absolutely loved this play and I m so happy that now I can say that I have read Shakespeare I m a cultured woman now y all Shakespeare is an adept poet and masterf the language He layers Golden Healer Dark Enchantress on jokes puns and references everywhere He has a massiveutput The Sea of work and a numberf different plots When we compare him to Never Can Say Goodbye other authors it is difficult to find anyone who stacks up but then we reften comparing him to the wrong peopleShakespeare didn t write books The Trouble With Harry or pamphletsr epics he wrote plays short pieces A Bloody Good Secret of drama that were meant to be fast paced and exciting That they are mainly experienced today as bound books and not theatrical productions does not change theirrigins If Hybrid Misfit one wants to look at the achievementsf Shakespeare he should be compared to someone f a similar bentHe should be compared with prolific writers known for catchy jokes and p I bought a skull as my nly prop for Halloween dress up and I hope someone will recognise that I will be Hamlet As spontaneous actions always need to be followed by bookish contemplation for full satisfaction I am preparing for the event by rereading the whole playSomewhere in the middle I started laughing at Hamlet s advice to Ophelia To the nunnery For who wants to end up a breeder Tempus of sinners I rejoiced at the fact that fake news are asld as the rotten state Push Pull of states in general and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern made my day several times I loved the play inside the play and what it tells usf Shakespeare s idea regarding the power Southern Fried Weirdness Reconstruction of literature to move and affect peoplen the deepest levelI uite coldly skim the veruoted to be r not to be and stop cold at Faith Her privates weHer privates we Meaning the middle parts Aggie S Nine Heroes of fortune I have Manning s Here s the thing about Hamlet if you see it and you hate it you saw a terrible Hamlet I don t care if it s given critical acclaim fuckff Kenneth Branagh Hamlet is supposed to be compelling and if you didn t find the character compelling that actor didn t do their job You need a Hamlet who knows the character not a Hamlet who wants to do grace to the character Yes Is Forever or some shit Here s the thing I used to hate this play Not lowkey hate I fucking despised it I thought it was boring andverrated and most Beneath Me of all I thought Hamlet was a dick and a boring character And then everything changed when the fire nation attacked when I saw Santa Cruz Shakespeare s 2016 productionf Hamlet starring actress Kate Eastwood Norris as Hamlet CHECK OUT HER AND OPHELIA ON THE RIGHT THE BLACK COAT AND PURPLE DRESS IF ANY OF Y ALL HAVE A DUBIOUSLY LEGAL RECORDING OF THIS SHIT PLEASE LINK MEI loved it Not Diaries Of An Urban Panther only did I love it I loved it so much that my entire interpretationf the character changed I keep using sheher pronouns to describe Hamlet because that actress has literally replaced the character in my head And that is what Hamlet should be about That is how you should feel after you watch a truly great production You should feel like you ve been inwardly changed as a person You should also probably have cried at least nce HI GUYS HERE ARE MY CHARACTER PERFORMANCE OPINIONS HAVE FUN In general every character s pain should matter Every character needs to matter every character needs to make you feel Hamlet shouldn t be an asshole Hamlet is a very complex character and yeah he does a lot f screwing around with people But his interactions with Horatio all his interactions excluding Claudius in 12 his love letter to Ophelia and The Colonel Of Chicago other s descriptionsf his newfound madness as being The Most Dangerous Game A Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Collection outf character paint a very different picture It is not compelling to watch an asshole be an asshole for four hours You know what s far compelling A kind young man struggling with grief and anger informed suddenly that he must become cruel and unkindLet s put emphasis n the young part If you accept the first folio as real the nly line referring to his age establishes him as 20 at most It is the second folio where the same line is changed to referring to a 23 year period since Yoric s death rather than a 12 year period As a result the idea that he s thirty probably comes from dialogue changes as the Hamlet actor aged I know no Night Visions 5 one read this but Hamlet should be a teenager A lotf people think From Two To Five of Ophelia s character as this very innocent virgin and I m going to utterly disagree Ophelia s character is about agency Her character is doubted by all thether characters yet keeps to her guns and continuously sticks up for herself So many adaptations A Strange And Bitter Fruit of this show will take away her agency and give it to thether char.
