Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿

HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.

But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

"He [Saint-Just] himself had had to fight to overcome the doubts raised over the fact that he was the youngest member of the Convention. His political enemies had made much of this, dismissing him as not yet ready for the responsibility of public office. This characterization had dogged him since his first attempt at an election into national politics, when he was below the legal age. After Saint-Just’s death Courtois mocked him as having been too young to be entrusted with the responsibilities of political leadership, describing him as ‘…only just escaped from the chalk dust of school’. Saint-Just himself had argued, however, that the contrary was true. Back in 1791 he had characterized his political identity in these terms: ‘I am very young…but because I was young, it seemed to me that I was closer to nature’. Proximity to nature made a man more authentically virtuous. Thus youth and lack of experience were advantages in revolutionary politics, for they meant that one had not been corrupted by the power institutions of the old regime."

HEY what are yr thoughts on claudius and hamlet sr.'s relationship or rather their /complete lack thereof/

swanjolras:

i K R it’s SO FUCKIN WEIRD

i mean i think it’s like 75% a problem of various productions— i don’t think any productions really address the fact that, y’know, claudius and king hamlet were brothers (except the lion king, which does it, uh, fairly well)

but even claudius is all, like

But you must know, your father lost a father,
That father lost, lost his, and the survivor bound
In filial obligation for some term
To do obsequious sorrow; but to persevere
In obstinate condolement is a course
Of impious stubbornness; ‘tis unmanly grief;

when he could absolutely say, like, “yeah! i also lost a family member! and y’know hamlet i have done my crying and now i am bangin’ your mom like a Real Man”

except um hopefully he would say it in a more poetic way.

it’s funny, bc the only one who really talks about any of hamlet sr.’s relationships with anybody is hamlet. i can’t do the verification rn, but i’m pretty sure hamlet is the only one who ever really talks about his father beyond a line or two— which is the whole idea, right?

claudius and gertrude’s non-mourning isn’t just a refusal to be sad, it’s a refusal to acknowledge hamlet sr.’s existence. hamlet’s not just isolated bc he’s grieving, he’s isolated bc there’s an entire part of his life and self that’s vanished into thin air, and no one will acknowledge that it was even there.

the play-within-a-play isn’t just “oh is claudius guilty or not” for hamlet, it’s a way for him to say my father was real, his marriage was real, he lived, he died, look! it happened!, it’s a way for hamlet to revive him and just for a few minutes live in a world where he’s alive again

and then, y’know, he dies. even in fiction within fiction he dies. even stories can’t keep him alive, because words are useless and language is useless, and the story ends and all hamlet has is ghosts and imagination, because not until in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain is hamlet capable of understanding that keeping people from dying is not the point of stories.

so i guess there’s your answer, anon. claudius doesn’t seem to have a relationship with hamlet sr. because to claudius, hamlet sr. isn’t real. not until he’s forced to be.

How do guys you keep it together on set? How do you get anything done? x
