The thematic elements found in the plays of William Shakespeare cover nearly every topic imaginable. Since their composition audiences have left no stone unturned in their examination of the texts as they seek to find deeper meaning in the plots. Still, many of the author’s patterns continue to inspire new meaning in the minds of readers. A prime example is the use of suicide in his many tragedies. Having a character take his or her own life has made a large impact on the writer’s works and opened the door for that taboo to be witnessed onstage. The tragedy of Hamlet in particular lends itself as an excellent case study for examining suicide through a character’s motive. In addition, the societal views on suicide have changed significantly since the time in which the plays were written. By examining the circumstances of suicidal characters in Hamlet and contextualizing modern day resources, audiences can gain new meaning of Shakespeare’s work.
