Ghosts, Murder, and More Murder - Hamlet Part 1: Crash Course Literature 203 - YouTube (2)

about the consequences of his actions. I mean here's Hamlet saying, “Can this ghost

(whose name I remind you is Hamlet) be trusted? Is justice the business of people or of God.

Now obviously there are no easy answers to those questions but earthly justice is clearly

corrupt in this play — I mean Claudius has usurped the kingdom and there's evidence that old King

Hamlet might not have been the greatest ruler either.

And Claudius is already being punished spiritually, although it's not clear whether it comes

from himself or from god, but, like, at one point he tries to pray and finds that he actually can't:

“My words fly up, my thoughts remain below words without thought never to heaven go,”

Now prayer was seen as cleansing and in that

scene Hamlet decides not to kill Claudius because he believes that Claudius is praying

and therefore will be cleansed of his sin and will go straight to heaven if Hamlet killed

him right then. And that wouldn't be fair! Of course, actually,

if he'd just killed Claudius in that moment due to the thoughts not going up to heaven

everything would've been fine. I mean not for Claudius, but you know, for justice.

So should Hamlet act? Should he let diving justice take its course? Does divine justice

only work through people? Even I can't decide! But Mr Green, Mr Green, in the end how does

Hamlet make up his mind though? Well, Me From the Past, when he finally makes

up his mind he's dieing, right? He has like seconds left to live.

Ultimately, Hamlet is a great play for its aphorisms, and its language, and its ambiguity,

but also because it brilliantly captures the fact that we do not know what we are doing.

Hamlet doesn't struggle to decide a course of action because he's young or because

he's an academic or because he's a narcissist. He struggles because he's human.

We'll continue our discussion of him and the play next week. Thanks for watching. I'll see you then.

Ghosts, Murder, and More Murder - Hamlet Part 1: Crash Course Literature 203 - YouTube (2)

about the consequences of his actions. I mean here's Hamlet saying, “Can this ghost Konsequenzen seiner Handlungen nachdenkt. Ich meine, Hamlet fragt hier, ob er dem Geist sobre as conseqüências de suas ações. Eu quero dizer aqui está dizendo Hamlet: "Pode este fantasma över konsekvenserna av sina handlingar. jag menar här har vi Hamlet som säger, "Kan detta spöke

(whose name I remind you is Hamlet) be trusted? Is justice the business of people or of God. هل العدالة هي من شأن الناس أم الّله؟ (dessen Name, ihr erinnert euch, Hamlet ist) trauen kann? Ist Gerechtigkeit Sache der Menschen oder Gott? La justice est-elle l'affaire du peuple ou de Dieu ? » (que o nome I lembrar é Hamlet) ser confiável? É a justiça dos negócios de pessoas ou Deus. (vars namn jag påminner er är Hamlet) litas på? Är rättvisa en verksamhet för människor eller Gud?

Now obviously there are no easy answers to those questions but earthly justice is clearly Nun, offensichtlich gibt es keine einfachen Antworten auf diese Fragen, aber irdische Gerechtigkeit ist eindeutig Agora, obviamente, não há respostas fáceis para essas perguntas, mas a justiça terrena é claramente Nu, uppenbarligen, finns det inga enkla svar på dessa frågor men jordisk rättvisa är klart

corrupt in this play — I mean Claudius has usurped the kingdom and there's evidence that old King fehlerhaft - ich meine Claudius hat sich dem Königreich ermächtigt, und es gibt Hinweise, dass der alte König corrompido, quero dizer Claudius usurpou o reino e não há provas de que velho rei korrumperad – jag menar Claudius har tillskansat sig hela riket och det finns bevis för att den gamle kungen

Hamlet might not have been the greatest ruler either. Hamlet wohl auch nicht der beste aller Herrscher war. Hamlet pode não ter sido o maior governante ou. Hamlet kanske inte varit den bästa härskaren heller.

And Claudius is already being punished spiritually, although it's not clear whether it comes وتتم معاقبة كلوديوس روحًيا بالفعل، رغم أنه ليس واضًحا إن كان العقاب قادم من نفسه أم من الرب، Und Claudius wird bereits spirituell gestraft, auch wenn nicht klar ist, ob es von ihm selbst E Cláudio já está sendo punido espiritualmente, embora não seja claro se se trata Och Claudius blir redan straffad andligt, även om det inte är klart om det kommer

from himself or from god, but, like, at one point he tries to pray and finds that he actually can't: لكنه يحاول في مرحلة ما أن يصّلي ويجد أنه غير قادر على ذلك حًقا: oder von Gott kommt, aber an einem Punkt versucht er zu beten und findet heraus, dass er nicht kann: mais, à un moment, il essaie de prier et se rend compte qu'il ne peut pas : de si mesmo ou de Deus, mas em um ponto ele tenta rezar e descobre que, na verdade, från honom själv eller från gud, men vid ett tillfälle försöker han att be och finner att han faktiskt

“My words fly up, my thoughts remain below words without thought never to heaven go,” "تنطلق ألفاظي إلى الُعلى، وفي الحضيض تظّل أفكاري: "ما بلغت السماء قط ألفاظ خلت من أفكارها." "Das Wort fliegt auf, der Sinn hat keine Schwingen / Wort ohne Sinn kann nicht zum Himmel dringen." « Mes paroles s'envolent ; mes pensées restent en bas. Les paroles sans les pensées ne vont jamais au ciel. » Não é possível: "Minhas palavras voam acima, meus pensamentos permanecem abaixo / palavras sem pensamento nunca para o céu inte kan: "Mina ord flyger upp, mina tankar stannar kvar nedan / ord utan tanke aldrig till himlen

Now prayer was seen as cleansing and in that ُتعد الصلاة تطهيًرا، وفي ذلك المشهد، يقرر هاملت ألا يقتل كلوديوس Gebete wurden als reinigend angesehen und in dieser Szene La prière était considérée comme purifiante et dans cette scène Hamlet décide de ne pas tuer Claudius ir," Agora oração foi visto como limpeza e em que når " Bön sågs som en rengöring och i denna

scene Hamlet decides not to kill Claudius because he believes that Claudius is praying beschließt Hamlet, Claudius nicht zu töten, weil er glaubt, dass Claudius betet, cena Hamlet não decide matar Claudius porque ele acredita que Cláudio está orando scen så beslutar sig Hamlet för att inte döda Claudius, eftersom han tror att Claudius ber

and therefore will be cleansed of his sin and will go straight to heaven if Hamlet killed وسيذهب إلى الجنة مباشرة إن قتله هاملت حينها. und deshalb von seinen Sünden gereinigt wird und direkt in den Himmel aufsteigen wird, sollte Hamlet ihn e, portanto, serão purificados de seus pecados e vai direto para o céu, se Hamlet matou och därför kommer att renas från sin synd och kommer att gå direkt till himlen om Hamlet dödade

him right then. And that wouldn't be fair! Of course, actually, ولن يكون ذلك منصًفا، إلا أنه بالطبع، إن قتل كلوديوس في تلك اللحظة فقط in diesem Moment töten. Und das wäre nicht fair! Natürlich und eigentlich, Et ce ne serait pas juste ! ele logo em seguida. E isso não seria justo! É claro que, na verdade, honom just då. Och det skulle inte vara rättvist! Naturligtvis –

if he'd just killed Claudius in that moment due to the thoughts not going up to heaven hätte er Claudius in dem Moment getötet, wäre alles gut gewesen, weil seine Gedanken ja nicht Evidemment, s'il avait tué Claudius à ce moment-là, tout aurait bien fini, se ele tivesse acabado de matar Claudius naquele momento devido aos pensamentos não vai para o céu om han bara hade dödat Claudius i det ögonblicket – på grund av tankarna som inte kommer upp till himlen

everything would've been fine. I mean not for Claudius, but you know, for justice. ليس بالنسبة لكلوديوس، لكن بالنسبة للعدالة. in den Himmel kamen. Ich meine nicht für Claudius, aber ihr wisst schon, für Gerechtigkeit. puisque ses prières ne montaient pas au ciel. Je veux dire au nom de la justice, pas pour Claudius. tudo teria sido bom. Eu não quero dizer por Claudius, mas você sabe, por justiça. så skulle allt ha varit bra. Jag menar inte för Claudius, men du vet, för rättvisa.

So should Hamlet act? Should he let diving justice take its course? Does divine justice Also sollte Hamlet handeln? Sollte er es der himmlischen Gerechtigkeit überlassen? Geschieht Então deve Hamlet ato? Se ele deixar de mergulho a justiça siga seu curso? Será que a justiça divina Så bör Hamlet agera? Borde han den gudomliga rättvisan ha sin gång? Fungerar gudomlig rättvisa

only work through people? Even I can't decide! But Mr Green, Mr Green, in the end how does himmlische Gerechtigkeit nur mittels Menschen? Sogar ich kann nicht entscheiden! Aber Mr. Green, Mr. Green, Mais M. Green, M. Green, à la fin comment Hamlet se décide-t-il alors ? só funcionam por meio de pessoas? Mesmo eu não posso decidir! Mas Sr. Green, Sr. Green, no final, como faz bara genom människor? Även jag kan inte bestämma mig! Men Mr Green, Mr Green, i slutändan vad

Hamlet make up his mind though? Well, Me From the Past, when he finally makes wie entscheidet sich Hamlet am Ende? Nun, Ich der Vergangenheit, wenn er sich schließlich Hamlet fazer a sua mente embora? Bem, Me From the Past, quando ele finalmente faz bestämmer sig Hamlet för att göra? Jo, Mig-från-det-förflutna, när han slutligen bestämmer

up his mind he's dieing, right? He has like seconds left to live. تبقت لديه ثواٍن في الحياة. entscheidet, ist er am Sterben, richtig? Er hat nur noch Sekunden zu leben. a sua mente ele está morrendo, certo? Ele tem como segundos de vida. sig så är han döende, eller hur? Han har några sekunder kvar att leva.

Ultimately, Hamlet is a great play for its aphorisms, and its language, and its ambiguity, في نهاية المطاف، إن هاملت مسرحية عظيمة لحكمها ولغتها وغموضها، Letztendlich ist Hamlet ein großartiges Stück wegen seiner Lehrsprüche und Spache und Mehrdeutigkeit, Em última análise, Hamlet é um grande jogo para a sua aforismos, e sua linguagem, e sua ambiguidade, I det stora hela så är Hamlet en stor lekplats för sina aforismer, dess språk och dess tvetydighet,

but also because it brilliantly captures the fact that we do not know what we are doing. لكن أيًضا لأنها تسّجل ببراعة حقيقة أننا لا نعلم ما الذي نفعله. aber auch weil es bravourös die Tatsache einfängt, dass wir nicht wissen, was wir tun. mas também porque brilhantemente capta o fato de que não sabemos o que estamos fazendo. men också eftersom den briljant fångar det faktum att vi inte vet vad vi gör.

Hamlet doesn't struggle to decide a course of action because he's young or because لا يعاني هاملت في تحديد مسار عمل لأنه صغير أو لأنه أكاديمي أو لأنه نرجسي؛ Hamlet hat Probleme sich für eine Vorgehensweise zu entscheiden, nicht weil er jung ist oder weil Que Hamlet não lutam para decidir um curso de ação, porque ele é jovem ou porque Hamlet kämpar inte för att bestämma en serie av åtgärder eftersom han är ung eller på grund

he's an academic or because he's a narcissist. He struggles because he's human. إنه يعاني لأنه إنسان. er ein Gelehrter ist, oder ein Narzisst. Es fällt ihm schwer, weil er menschlich ist. Il a des difficultés parce qu'il est humain. ele é um acadêmico ou porque ele é um narcisista. Ele luta porque ele é humano. av att han är en akademiker eller för att han är en narcissist. Han kämpar för att han är mänsklig.

We'll continue our discussion of him and the play next week. Thanks for watching. I'll see you then. سنكمل نقاشنا عنه وعن المسرحية في الأسبوع القادم. شكًرا على المشاهدة، سأراكم حينها.
