I think the book does illustrate Hamlet suffering from the Oedipal complex. The scene in the Mel Gibson movie does portray this. However, in the book, it doesn't seem like Hamlet is suffering from the Oedipal complex. it appears to me that he wants to kill Claudius, but doesn't want to marry his mother. Hamlet is probably mad that his mother married at all. He believes that Gertrude shouldn't have married again because that would be betraying King Hamlet, her deceased husband.
I don't think that hamlet suffers from the oedipal complex, i think that hamlet loved his father very much and so naturally when his father asks him to avenge him he of course wants to. Hamlet is probalby angry at the fact that his mother remarried, but knowing that the person who she did marry isnot only his dead fathers brother but also his fathers murderer, this hightens hamlets hate and fuels his rage.
Yes, I do think that Hamlet suffers from an Oedipal complex, because he does want to kill Claudius, and also wants to win the love of his mother. No matter how you portray the scene, Hamlet, although he has almost no remorse for his murder of Polonius, has some connection to his mother and is mad that she married Claudius. Hamlet even tells his mother that her act of marriage to her own brother-in-law is worse than murder, showing how much his mother's acts and opinion matters to Hamlet. Also, I do agree with Eva that the Mel Gibson version highly portrays the Oedipal complex, as well as the Branna version. In the Branna version, it shows a high intimacy between the Queen and Hamlet when they speak while their foreheads are touching. For me, this scene proves that Hamlet suffers from an Oedipal complex.
Yes i belive he kind of suffers from Oedipal complex because he wants to kill his step father Claudius , but he didnt want to kill his real father the king .As well as how he would like to win back the love of his mother. I think Hamlet is angry that his mother remaried at all but especially within two months. I believe Hamlet is also angry that his mother moved on from his father but remarried his uncle of all people i think if she had taken more time and remarried someone else Hamlet would not of been so angry
I think he suffers from an Oedipal complex, but in his mind he thinks he is doing the right thing when he has so much love for his father and he is just trying to avenge his death. I also don't think it would of been a big deal that his mother remarried as long as she waited a little while and she didn't the man who killed her ex-husband, and Hamlet's father. I think it is bothering Hamlet because he knows the truth about Claudius and Gertrude didn't even seem like the death of the ex-king affected her.
I dont think that Hamlet suffers from an Oedipal complex. Shakespeare leaves alot of room for diffrent interprutations as we can see by watching the film. Mel Gibsons movie deffinitaly showed him as having one but I believe he is just conflicted and needs his mom. She is the only parent he has left, and realy the only friend even though hes mad at her she is still his mom. I think shakespeare wanted us to relate to her, and when you have a bad week or a problem or are sick theres no place like home or your parents.
I don't think that Hamlet suffers from an Oedipal comlex. I agree with Kayli that Shakespeare adds so much other issues that there isn't just one problem. I think that Hamlet suffers more from his father's death more then his mom remarrying King Hamlets brother, Claudius. Hamlet might be mad that his mother remarried in general but he could be jealous also.
I really don't think that Hamlet suffers from the Oedipal complex. Before the scene we are all thinking about he has to convince himself not to kill his mother. He convinces himself not to kill her only because his father told him to let here guilt sit with her so she can suffer. The oedipal complex also has to deal with getting rid of your father to be affectionate with your mother, which is obviously not the case in Shakespeare's Hamlet.
Although I think that is a good inference, I still think that Hamlet is mad about his mother marrying Claudius. I think that he could understand the fact that she needed to remarry as queen but did not approve one bit of her marrying someone who was so close to the king. Hamlet is suffering from the murder of his father and will almost do anything to get rid of murderer.
I do not think that Hamlet suffers from the oedipal complex. i think that Hamlet is just upset about the murder of his father and the fact that his mother married the murderer. i dont think it is jealousy i think that hamlet has extreme hatred towards claudius and his hate is starting to build with his mother
I do not think that Hamlet suffers from an Oedipal complex. There is no evidence in the text to show that he loves his mother, the only evidence in in the Mel Gibson movie. He does not want to marry his mother, and his stepfather should be killed for other reasons
I believe that Hamlet is suffering from the Oedipal Complex because of his hatred towards his Uncle/step father. Hamlet feels neglected by his mother because a majority of her attention is focused on her new husband. The Mel Gibbson interpretaion of the play visually showed Hamlet's lust over his own mother.
I don't think that Hamlet suffers from Oedipal complex. I think that Hamlet had more love for his father than his mother and for his mother to re-marry so quickly is the ultimate betrayal. In his mind he is doing the right thing and nothing will stop him from avenging his father.please consider grading this blog because i was at my grandfathers funeral and the last thing i was thinking about was doing this assignment.
I believe that Hamlet does not suffer from the Oedipal Complex, I just think that he's upset his father died so he wants to avenge his father and kill his new father for the reason that he killed his dad. I don't think that Hamlet would be as upset if his mother remarried a good noble man, but the fact that she married his uncle really upsets Hamlet.
