WHAT BRINGS “SPLENDOR AND SOLEMNITY’ TO THE ATMOSPHERE IN ‘HAMLET’

Research outputpeer-review

Abstract

A. Anikst, a prominent Soviet expert on Shakespeare, described in his commentary to “Hamlet” the atmosphere in the castle as full of “splendor, pomp and solemnity”. For the present study, we selected from the text of the play sets of words describing way of life, furniture, clothes, food, drinks, dishes, i.e. things, which can create splendor and pomp of the court life. The analysis has shown that practically nothing in the text produces this effect. In a number of cases, way of life words in the Russian translation of the play may sound more elevated and make the general atmosphere more solemn.
