Sonnets, on sonnets, on sonnets, on Hamlet

Shakespeare displays his Sonnet 116 with Prince Hamlet in Hamlet. The theme is that unconditional love cannot be corrupted or changed. After Queen Gertrude married Claudius, Hamlet was distraught and furious with his mother for dishonoring his father. But he still loved her because she was his mother and even took the time to be use “daggers” against her in her bedroom. He hoped that his words would change her and make her see what horrible things she has done in regards to incest.
