Psychoanalytic Critique Essay

This essay focuses in on Hamlet’s state of melancholia after having had lost his father. Along side my analysis are Freud’s ideas of mourning and melancholia as discussed within his article “Mourning and Melancholia.” The loss of his father causes Hamlet to enter a state that surpasses mourning. This is understood as Freud’s idea of melancholia. Hamlet’s “To Be or Not To Be” speech, his loss of self worth, and his final decision of suicide are all examples that point to Hamlet being in a state of melancholia.
