Hamlet Final “Loyalty”

Loyalty

I live in a community where everyone has to contribute to completing an action. My community is made up of a group of family who likes to participate and work together. But day by day, each day doesn’t go by without an argument. With that being said, my community is made up of a group of a family whom I call sibling and they are the main cause of every action. Of course, every family is different and unique from one another. I choose to talk about loyalty because I think it is one of the most important traits that humans practice. But in today’s society, loyalty rarely exists between each individual. Also, I chose this theme because it perfectly fits into Hamlet where people show respect, commitment and sometimes having few problems along the way.


 

Safety

If your mind dislike anything, obey it. I will forestall their repair hither and you say you are not fit. (Act V, Scene II)

This picture shows two siblings having a moment together. We can see that the big sister is trying to help her little brother out with his snow gears. She is trying to fit his hands into the gloves so that his hands are warm enough when he is outside in this cold weather. She is helping him to be safe outside because without his snow gears, he wouldn’t be warm when he is outside. This represents the center of my community. There seems to be the feeling of “care” in this picture, just as Horatio cared for Hamlet’s safety when Hamlet decided that he would take upon the offer of playing with Laertes that King Claudius has asked for. Horatio wanted to stand up for his friend to make sure he will be okay just like the big sister helped her little brother with his snow gears. My community seem to care for each other and help each other out, just like Horatio, caring for his friend, Hamlet.

Respect

We shall obey, were she ten times our mother. Have you any further trade with us? (Act III, Scene II)

In this picture, it shows a little guy who is very faithful in his responsibilities. We can see that this little boy is helping in the house by doing his job, as his everyday task is to take out a bag of trash to the bin. He is showing respect to his fellow siblings and is being responsible for his duty. This represents the center of my community. He is obeying his elder siblings and is doing his job, just as Hamlet’s response to seeing his mother was brave. Hamlet obeyed his mother’s word when she asked to speak to him. Just like this little fellow who is respecting his elder siblings, Hamlet is also doing the same by respecting his mother. My community seems to have respect for their elders and obey the rules, just like Hamlet obeying his mother, Queen Gertrude.

Trustworthy 

(Hamlet) “But, in the beaten way of friendship, what make you at Elsinore?”  (Rosencrantz) “To visit you, my lord, no other occasion.” (Hamlet)  “(aside) Nay, then, I have an eye of you—If you love me, hold not off.” (Act II, Scene II)

This picture shows two siblings who are in a conversation. We can see that the little boy is a little bit curious and furious about what his sister just told him. He doesn’t look happy at all and we can tell that he doesn’t believe what his sister just told him. The girl might have mentioned something which may seem a little bit confusing and not true. But as he keeps on asking her questions and confronted her, the girl finally told him the truth that she used his ruler without his permission. This represents the center of my community. She denied telling the truth in the beginning, just like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s lied about the main reason for visiting Hamlet. The girl had to be honest in the end because she knew her little brother wouldn’t trust her if she denies the truth. Because she wanted to save her trust with her brother, she had to tell the truth, just like Rosencrantz owning up to the truth in the end by telling Hamlet why they were here. My community seems to have some issues of telling lies but then they eventually get caught in the end. My community depends on being honest and owning up to the truth, just like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern telling Hamlet the truth about their visit.

Love 

Well, my lord. If he steal aught the whilst this play is playing, And ’scape detecting, I will pay the theft. (Act III, Scene II)

Well, my lord.
If he steal aught the whilst this play is playing,
And ’scape detecting, I will pay the theft. (Act III, Scene II)

This picture shows two siblings getting along pretty well. We can see that they are bonding together and happily drawing and coloring together. They are even sharing colors and a drawing sketchbook. This time, there is no quarreling or yelling. They are at peace and having a very special sibling moment with love. This represents the center of my community. As a big sibling to her little brother, she cares for him and wants him to use her sketchbook, just as Horatio is caring for Hamlet and also wants to help Hamlet figure out if King Claudius was the murderer of Hamlet’s father. We can see that those two siblings get along really well and each one of them would do anything to help another, even if it means to share or spend time together. Both of them love each other and they would do anything for each other, just like Horatio who loves Hamlet and is willing to do anything he can to help his great friend. My community is based on love and bonding together or even helping each other, just like Horatio who is brave enough to do anything for his friend, Hamlet.

Commitment

(Hamlet) “What ho, Horatio!” (Horatio)“Here, sweet lord, at your service.” (Hamlet) “Horatio, thou art e’en as just a man As e’er my conversation coped withal.” (Act III, Scene II)

In this picture, it shows a girl who also likes to be responsible. We can see that she is helping out in the house by doing dishes. When it comes to being responsible in the house, we all know that there is no need for complaining. Having to be responsible and being committed are some of the characteristic that is common in my community. This represents the center of my community. She is very committed to doing her best in the house and does a good job in helping out, just as Horatio’s commitment to Hamlet when Hamlet needs his friend. Horatio is always there for Hamlet whenever Hamlet calls for him and he listens to Hamlet. As the picture shows that the girl is not even complaining and is very committed, Horatio does the same by not complaining at all. My community seems to show commitment to one another and help out in the house, just like Horatio who is very committed and dedicated to his friend, Hamlet.
