FC: BY: Amanda Funnell | Deception and Betrayal Visual Essay
1: Deception and Betrayal are able to destroy trust. And in the greatest extreme of things, they can result in loss of relationships, suicide, and even murder.
6: "Why, any thing, but to th` purpose. You were sent for, and there is a kind of confession in your looks which your modesties have not craft enough to color. I know the good king and queen have sent for you." | Quote from Hamlet.
7: In this text, the queen (Hamlets mother) had sent Rosencrantz and Guildestern to go out to find Hamlet and to try and find out what is wrong with him lately. They are deceiving Hamlet because he knows them as his friends, and instead of being "friends" they are trying to pry information out of him to deliver back to his parents.
10: " My lord, as I was sewing in my closet, Lord Hamlet, with his doublet all unbraced; No hat upon his head; his stockings fouled, Ungartered, and down-gyved to his ankle; Pale as his shirt, his knees knocking each other; And with a look so piteous in purport as if he had loosed out of hell to speak of horrors -- he comes before me" | Quoted from Ophelia.
11: This has reference and relates back to betrayal because when Hamlet went in to talk to Ophelia, some one he trusted and loves, she took the information right back to her father, which then would be sent back to the king, which would make them all convinced Hamlet is actually crazy.
12: " To be, or not to be"
16: "And the more pity that great folks should have count'nance in this world to drown or hang themselves more than their even-Christian." | Quoted from Hamlet. | After everything that has occurred for Hamlet, he is now contemplating suicide. His father, killed by family, his love killed herself, and he can't even trust his good friends anymore. All hope is lost it seems.
18: "I do repent; but heaven hath pleas'd it so, to punish me with this, and this with me. That I must be their scourge and minister. I will bestoe them, and will answer will. The death I have him. So again goodnight. I must be cruel only to be kind. Thus bad begins worse enemies behind.
19: Hamlet killed Polonius. He is repenting the killing that took place, but after that Hamlet doesn't feel to guilty because Polonius was snooping in on Hamlet and his mothers conversation. Something that was supposed to be private. So, from that Hamlet would feel betrayed. Both by Polonius, and from his mother. Whom he is always supposed to be able to trust.
20: "Seems, Madam! nay it is; I know not "seems." Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother, Nor customary suits of solemn black, Now windy suspiration of forced breath, No, nor the fruitful river in the eye, Nor the dejected 'havior of the visage, Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief, that can denote me truly: these indeed seem, for they are actions that a man might play: That these trappings are the suits of woe. "
21: This quote is simply explaining that even though with Hamlet's clothing ideas do show grief, the deception of how he truly feels about his father's death is far more intense from the inside then what is being showed from the outside. And that nobody truly cares for him or how he is feeling. They now seem to all be caught up in newer events.
