The Tragicall Historie of Hamlet Prince of Denmark

Whom first assembled for the Oscar winning film Henry V gather here to perform the rarely heard complete version of the play This clear subtly nuanced stunning dramatization presented by The Renaissance Theatre Company in association with Bbc Broadcasting features such luminaries as Sir John Gielgud Derek Jacobi Emma Thompson and Chri. 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 fuck off 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 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 and overrated and most 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 production of 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 only did I love it I loved it so much that my entire interpretation of 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 once 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 of screwing around with people But his interactions with Horatio all his interactions excluding Claudius in 12 his love letter to Ophelia and other s descriptions of his newfound madness as being out of 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 on the young part If you accept the first folio as real the only 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 one read this but Hamlet should be a teenager A lot of people think 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 the other characters yet keeps to her guns and continuously sticks up for herself So many adaptations of this show will take away her agency and give it to the other characters making her final mad scene seem silly and out 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 both of their pains You are not not not supposed to only care for Hamlet because of his blinding angst 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 One of 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 obviously a bit of a smart villain in contrast to his heroic older brother but that s not the extent of his characterization Claudius is in actuality somewhat of a clever political player You shouldn t love him but if you hate him this will not be as interesting a play VERDICT I fucking love this show Please watch it before you read it because it s not as good unless you ve seen a really good production Save yourself and skip Branagh Tennant s a little better actually Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtube

Stopher Ravenscroft It combines a full cast with stirring music and sound effects to bring this magnificent Shakespearen classic vividly to life Revealing new riches with each listening this production of Hamlet is an invaluable aid for students teachers and all true lovers of Shakespeare a recording to be treasured for decades to com. I bought a skull as my only 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 of sinners I rejoiced at the fact that fake news are as old as the rotten state of states in general and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern made my day several times I loved the play inside the play and what it tells us of Shakespeare s idea regarding the power of literature to move and affect people on the deepest levelI uite coldly skim the overuoted to be or not to be and stop cold at Faith Her privates weHer privates we Meaning the middle parts of fortune I have Manning s book at home and I have been meaning to read it forever and I didn t have a clue that the title was a uote from Hamlet and that it referred to female genitals I am not even at the point yet in the play where my skull makes an appearance alas Yorick but I have already started a new book based on my rereading of HamletThat is what happens to readers stories affect them they react and that reaction generates new action followed by new stories in eternity a precious circle That s Hamlet Hamlet is human in a rotten state Who knows whether he is insane or not I guess it depends on who you askI am still feeling kind towards him Ophelia s fate is still in the future as is the cathartic show effect of taking up the bodies to the stageWhen going to bed later after finishing the last acts Maestro Shakespeare may be out of my favour again But that is another story

    I don't have any earth shattering insights to share from this most recent of god knows how many readings but this time through I was struck by 1 what a damn fine piece of stagecraft this is from the suspenseful moody opening on the castle battlements to the solemn dead march carrying the prince offstage and 2 how Shakespeare seems to want Hamlet's personality particularly the wellspring of his actions and lack of action to remain

    Is it possible that I had only read the first 4 scenes and Hamlet already became one of my favorite male characters ever? YES Why? He’s constantly wearing black and monologuing about how literally everything is hard and making eve

  9. says:

    Shakespeare is an adept poet and master of the language He layers on jokes puns and references everywhere He has a massive output of work and a number of different plots When we compare him to other authors it is difficult to find anyone who stacks up but then we're often comparing him to the wrong peopleShakespeare did

    “Madness in great ones must not unwatch’d go”I don’t know what to say about Hamlet I could go on about how it is a story of madness and revenge I could talk about the bonds of family loyalty the sacrifices of love
