Jonathan Roth British Literature I English 213 Prof. Sharma Spring 2007 The Young Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up In the Shakespeare novel Hamlet, young Hamlet faces many decisions in that will affect the rest of his life. I agree with the statement of Maynard Mack, who views Hamlet as a young naïve man who is unable to come to terms of the surroundings around him. Hamlet is seen as a young, immature boy growing into a man that is having a hard time dealing with the realities that he is facing in his growing years. The shock of his father’s death and the fact he feels isolated in this whole situation does not help the struggles that Hamlet seems to be going through. Throughout the novel Hamlet goes about many various ways in fulfilling his quest of revenging his father explained to him by his father’s ghost. Old Hamlet’s ghost wishes for Hamlet to revenge the death of his father that his uncle Claudius performed with malevolence intentions. Hamlet throughout the novel proves his immaturity and inability to act to act on the ghost wishes; although he does talk a big talk. 1

O that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the Everlasting had not fix’d His canon ’gainst self- slaughter! O God! O God! How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable Seem to me all the uses of this world! Fie on’t! O fie! ’tis anun weeded garden, That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature Possess it merely. That it should come to this!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
