Existentialist analysis of Act 3, Scene 1
“Slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”
Depiction of events as result of destiny as opposed to human action, “bad faith”
“A thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to”
Two possible existentialist conclusions can be drawn from the line above:
1. Human is bound to an amount of suffering, by natural order – bad faith
2. This amount of suffering can be caused by existentialist anguish.
In conjunction, the conclusions above outline a paradox, where the statement is both existentialist and orthodox- existential anguish appears to be destined.
Quotations which exhibit non-existentialist beliefs, namely those regarding meaning and destiny:
"Whips and scorns of time"
"The undiscovered country from whose borne no traveller has returned"
