Horatio and hamlet analysis

This confirms that he genuinely cares for Hamlet and is not just obeying orders because Hamlet is the prince. Role Horatio demonstrates his loyalty and trustworthiness in a number of ways in the play.

O, speak! True and unselfish, he is a friend that any person no matter what age they may be or what time era they live in would be proud to have!

When Hamlet lies dying, Horatio is prepared to commit the very passionate act of suicide so that he will not have to live without his beloved friend, but even in this he is resolute and level-headed, acting not out of uncontrollable emotion but a sense of honour and duty.

He first performs the role of a steadfast friend to the prince and the doubles this up by being the teller of the life story of Hamlet. Horatio is portrayed in the play as the dearest and closest friend and confidant to one of the main characters Hamlet.

horatio hamlet quotes

Landy, Alice S. This is why besides Horatio and Hamlet being great friends, Hamlet trusts his friend to the extent of leaving the story and fate of his life and country in the hands of his friend. I cannot help but see a true reflection of the individual I am through this character.

The firm qualities that he possesses attract praise and admiration from Hamlet that Hamlet himself lacks, such as self-control and virtue of truth.
