Hamlet - Was Prince Hamlet Wacko? In Shakespeare\'s Hamlet , the main character offers a puzzling and ambiguous persona. Throughout the play, Hamlet often contradicts himself. He seems to balance the virtues of playing a role , with being true to himself. Further proof of these conflicting personas are demonstrated by his actions and inactions. The ambiguity noted here, lies in two conflicting mannerisms displayed by the young Hamlet: One that is perfectly calm and rational; and another which di

In a casual sense, therefore, dating can certainly mean hanging out with the opposite sex for non-romantic pur

A shock of light hair grew from his lean head, and his face was bleak and unapproachable. A smash-up in the past shortened his right side and caused him to walk doubled-over with a limp. Ethan was stiffened and grizzled like an old man, even though he was young. Frome would appear almost barbaric in your first glance at him. For this reason he was ostracized, isolated
