Soliloquies in Hamlet

            As we all know, the play Hamlet is essentially about life and death. We can see this through the character Hamlet. Hamlet's character is not one dimensional; there are numerous sides to his personality. We can tell this by the way his inclination differs all through the play. Just in the monologues, we have the capacity to see the genuine side of Hamlet, and we start to create a superior understanding of his complex character. A monologue is a discourse in which a character (for this situation Hamlet) uncovers to audience his thoughts and feelings which he is not able to express to different characters in the play. To put it in other words, Soliloquies give a voice to Hamlet's thoughts. This is the reason soliloquies are so important, on the grounds that a character can express his most inward thoughts without judgment from individual characters in the play. Each soliloquy successfully conveys to the reader Hamlet's state of mind and intensity of his emotion. The starting monologues demonstrate that Hamlet is uncertain and unsure. In this way, it's the soliloquy found in each Act of the play that readers can watch Hamlet grow inside.
             Shakespeare's writings in the tragedy of Hamlet reveal seven in depth soliloquies spoken by Hamlet. In these soliloquies, Shakespeare shows the portions of Hamlet's personality. The analysis of the soliloquies help readers better understand the exact mind of Hamlet. At the conclusion of the play, the readers feel as if they know Hamlet and his soliloquies contribute too much of that understanding. Hamlet's soliloquy 'to be or not to be that is the question' (Act 111, scene 1) is one of the most remarkable soliloquies that serves to highlight the state of indecisiveness in which he finds himself. Each one of Hamlet's soliloquies reveals his innermost thoughts and gives the reader or the audience an insight of his feeling at that time. Four of Hamlet's soliloquies illustrates how he is initially indecisive, but eventually makes a decision to take revenge against his uncle.
