  • Theme Of Hamlet's First Soliloquy

    in act one prepares the reader for Hamlet’s fourth soliloquy about suicide by suggesting he is depressed. Shakespeare’s word choice also aids in suggesting Hamlet’s depression, particularly words such as ‘rank’ and ‘gross’ (line 136). According to the OED, Shakespeare has used various adjective forms of the word ‘rank’ in his plays, especially two different denotations in Hamlet (adj, A, II 8c. and III 15a.).
