In Williams Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Shakespeare uses women as tool to develop Hamlet’s insanity. Women are portrayed as emotionally driven characters that manipulate and corrupt men.
Hamlet refers to the fragility of women on numerous occasions throughout Hamlet. Hamlet holds
“Frailty, thy name is woman…she followed my poor father’s body, like Niobe, all tears. Why she, even she—O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason would have mourned longer!” (Shakespeare 1.2.146-150)
Women make men bad people
“Get thee to a nunnery, farewell. Or, if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool, for wise men know well enough what monsters you make of them.” (Shakespeare 3.1.138-140)
