There was acting mad to fool people surrounding


There was a great deal of themes presented in Hamlet. Some were not as obvious as others, but they all had an important message to the society of the 16th century and all generations coming after it. The theme of madness is revealed by Hamlet from the way he acts throughout the play. Such as when Hamlet was acting mad to fool people surrounding him while planning for his father’s revenge. We’ve known that mental illness exists, since a long period of time. We have more knowledge about it, so we won’t find it as strange as we would if we had no background about it. Mental illness and madness wore first captured in the 15th century. In the time Hamlet was presented, mental illness was still a new thing to the society. Which suggests that the audience didn’t like it as much or maybe just knew it exists.We believe that mentally ill individuals have the right to have all opportunities as any other human being. Even though we believe in this personally, but our society always shows differences in the way they are treated.Betrayal occurred throughout the play as characters betray each other constantly.  We could see a lot of betrayal happening with in the family and towards each other.Such as: Gertrude had betrayed her family Rosencrantz and Guildenstern betrayed HamletOphelia betrayed Hamlet, and he betrayed her backBetrayal is one of the unaccepted values that a human should not have. Betrayal is still one of the worst action that an individual can take.In our culture we believe that betrayal is the worst action you can ever take. Betrayers as we say have nowhere between us or with us. This in fact is a famous saying in all of the arab countries.The main theme in Hamlet is revenge, because throughout the whole play Hamlet was welling for his revenge. Hamlet wanted to take revenge for his father. Which was killed by his uncle, so he wanted to kill his uncle.Nowadays we have laws to take our rights. We no more see cases where someone killed another to revenge. They only have to let law deal with it.Nowadays we have laws to take our rights. We no more see cases where someone killed another to revenge. They only have to let law deal with it Actually in our culture we believe that revenge should happen, not in away that goes against the law. We even have some parts of Quraan(our holy book) that prove that revenge is valid. We still believe that if you forgive you are at the better end of it.
