Ophelia’s fragments English.ver

A document in madness, thought and remenbrance fitted.



Act4 Scene4
Sir John Everett Millais

Ophelia’s madness, and her brother lrartes’ words, “A document in madness, thought and remenbrance fitted” Whereas Hamlet, who hates unrighteousness, believes in God and hates “Dirty”, is reduced to murder by his sense of justice, Ophelia is made insane by Hamlet, from the painting of John Everett Millais. Ophelia’s drowned body is adorned with numerous symbolic Christian plants, as though it were a water burial. Even in her madness, Ophelia kept Jesus’ name.

Perhaps I like this scene because it gives me a strong sense that no matter how the body perishes, the soul remains with Christ.

 If I were asked about my favorite quote from Shakespeare, I would say that Hamlet’s ‘A document in madness, thought and remembrance fitted’.

  “Even in madness there is a lesson” This is a question of human nature. Is man worthless if he loses his reason and social competence in conscience? Ophelia left the name of Jesus in the middle of his madness. Here she shows that those whose faith has grown are deeper rooted in something beyond human knowledge. God’s grace is visible in her. This is the contrast to Hamlet, who was cheated by his father’s ghost.

There is eternity in time, which is “pursued” like an infinitely open and free space.

But the time that is forgotten and that passes is “finished”.

Ophelia believed in Hamlet. She saw love as eternal.

Suddenly Hamlet’s betrayal thrust her into a finite world in which she herself is trapped by the end of love.

The end of love drives her to a world finished for herself. Her suicide is magnificently mourned by numerous readers. Her mad words are shown over and over, and kept alive in time by the actors.

Stepping onto the stage, where we enjoy drifting on the border between fiction and reality.

That photograph looks like a fragment of Ophelia. These flowers are not blooming in the water, These flowers don’t bloom in the water, we throw them in the water. It shows the cruelty of children who innocently pull out flowers, and the frailty of flowers that have lost their roots . Perhaps it is because the photographer does not spare the shadows.

Under the water the sound of the hustle and bustle is more audible than in our daily. It is faster than the speed of sound in the air, and Image has to catch up with it. Another strong point of this image is the bubbles, playing at the surface of the water. We can only imagine the conditions under which the bubbles were created. I don’t know what the conditions are like in the water, but the expressiveness of the water, the blisters and the short-lived flowers, life and death, light and shade, are all expressed in a lustrous way.

Light can only travel through straight lines, but it is blocked by a lot of things, creating shadows. The flower lives by photosynthesis, but also creates shadows with its own existence. Just by being alive, the existence of the world receives light and creates shadows. The shadows range from the innocent to the guilty, and their saturation is immeasurable. We don’t want to see the shadows created by the existence of flowers. “I don’t like people who can simply say that flowers are innocent. I am sure that the man who photographed them understands what this means. Flowers are certainly innocent , although they do create shadows.

The crying flower Ophelia is a familiar flower.”Schatten”.
