Well, blood is thicker than water


The Shakespearean tragedy ‘Hamlet’ constantly challenged directors, actors, literary critics, spectators and readers.

It’s a theatrical work with complex interweaving and endless twists.

However, following the Bard in his dramaturgical madness forces us to give some intriguing reflections.

Therefore, let us enter the realm of the family and its internal mechanisms.



POISONOUS RELATIONS

Indeed, the family is the first and safest shelter for an individual, but it’s equally valid that the family environment it’s also the first natural arena in which to learn to defend and fight.

Hamlet’s family is an excellent example of a lion’s den or, if you prefer, snakes.

Therefore, it’s clear from the outset how creeping is among the members of the royal family of Denmark the hate, resentment, envy, the wildest ambition.

Sibling rivalry.



IN OTHER WORDS, ROTTEN BLOOD

The late King of Denmark, his brother Claudius, his wife Gertrude and his son Hamlet are all disturbing characters.

Hypocrisy reigns supreme among them.

Just observe how everyone, without exception, is ready to plot against each other.

The end result is a streak of blood, poisoned.



THE VANITIES’ FAIR

Inside this perverse mechanism that is this royal revenge (the real and only protagonist of the drama), they appear in the foreground some despicable aspects of the human soul.

In the drama, we encounter vanity as a thirst for power, diabolical calculation skills, vainglory and overestimating one’s abilities.

In conclusion, the right to recrimination can never turn into an act of bloody revenge.

You all know the ending.
