Analyze Hamlet's character based on what he tells his mother Gertrude.

Apr 13th, 2015

Gertrude is more so than any other character in the play. the antithesis of her son Hamlet. Hamlet is a scholar and a philosopher. searching for life's most elusive answers. He cares nothing for this (mortal coil) and the vices to which man has become slave. Gertrude is shallow and thinks only about her body and external pleasures. Like a child she longs to be delighted. We do not see much of her in daily activity. But if we could we would see a woman enraptured by trinkets and fine clothe. soft pillows and warm baths. Gertrude is also a very sexual being and it is her sexuality that turns Hamlet so violently against her. The Ghost gives Hamlet who is already disgusted with his mother for marrying his uncle such a short time after his father's death even more information about the Queen............................................................
