The main point for this article is to explain how Hamlet’s language towards King Claudius raised the theme of empowerment. From my personal understanding this article is informing us on what they found after analyzing Hamlet’s language in the play, Tartell suggests that Hamlet is trying to develop a democracy. Hayley gave examples of what Hamlet said in the play including quotes and citations explaining his findings, also arguing and proving his point in this article. Source of the article seems to be reliable because I have seen other articles the author wrote and they are all credible.

I really like this article because it talked about some deep understanding of the Hamlet play, the author described Hamlet has the theme of love in it. I believe Rothman is trying to argue that Hamlet could have the theme of love in the play because what happened between Hamlet and Ophelia. Rothman said that Hamlet not only rejected Ophelia and made her crazy but also gave up on his passion in order to pursue his road of revenge.
