Hamlet's Personal Diary

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Hamlet's Personal Diary 24th March 1623 At this time of writing I am feeling very depressed and feel I have made some very wrong decisions today. Firstly, I went down to the lobby and had a long thought that started my depression, then Ophelia approached me she asked me how I felt and I told that I felt well even though I felt the opposite. She gave me all of the letters and gifts that I had given her and I told her that I loved her once. I tried to confuse her by then saying that she should not have believed that I loved her because I never did.

But, when I drew aside the curtain, I was shocked to see Polonius' body lying on the floor, dead. I thought of the effects that this would have on Ophelia and I suddenly regretted my actions even though I had just killed a man who did not deserve any respect. I showed my mother my locket with a picture of my father in it and I showed her her own locket with a picture of Claudius in it. I questioned her judgement and how she could have loved my father, a "fair mountain", and then turned against him and marry my uncle, an insignificant "moor" compared to my father. I asked my mother twice "have you eyes?" to underline how mad she seemed marrying Claudius after my father. What kind of judgement or wisdom could have lead my mother into believing Claudius was deserving of the widow to my great father? ...read more.
