Who read Hamlet help me please: Note the various familial relationships in Hamlet
Note the various familial relationships in Hamlet. Compare and contrast the family unit of Polonius – Laertes – Ophelia with Hamlet’s relationships to the Ghost of Hamlet Sr., to Gertrude, and to Claudius. Like Hamlet, Laertes and Frotinbras are sons confronted with a father’s death. To what extent do they function as foils to Hamlet? What do they have in common? How do they differ?
