Theater Thursday: Hamlet

I decided to pin this picture because it demonstrates Gloucester's loss of power. With the physical loss of his eyes resulting in utter and literal blindness, he was definitely in deep emotional state. Since he became insane his mind pondered vulgar thoughts of suicide  and this picture makes evident his loss of sanity and power as a whole.

One of William Shakespeare’s hit plays is Hamlet. A tragic tale of a young prince who is forced to come to terms with his father’s death. Learning that his uncle betrayed him by murdering his father and marrying his mother, ultimately becoming King of Denmark. Hamlet is still grieving as he starts to succumb to madness as he loses touch with reality causing many around him to suffer.
