On the Estate of Debt: From Oedipus to Hamlet

Final Paper You may fashion your own question or choose one of the following three essay questions, observing proper grammar, syntax and coherence of argument. Your paper should be around six – seven pages long (2000-2500 words) Use at least two of the theoretical texts that were discussed in class. Please make sure to quote the texts properly and read them closely and carefully. Please state clearly at the top of your answer which question you are answering. Important: the paper must be handed in by March 12th, no extensions will be given 1. Oedipus Tyrannus begins with Oedipus addressing the crowed as children, while Antigone begins with Antigone addressing her sister. Both protagonists are intertwined within a familial inheritance, while both plays revolve around the question of destiny. However, Oedipus and Antigone articulate different positions in relation to their familial inheritance. What is the relation between the two protaganists? And what may this relation teach us about familial debt? 2. Ophelia interrupts Hamlet in the midst of his famous soliloquy and in his surprise he exclaims “nymph, in thy orisons be all my sins remembered”. And indeed, after Hamlet kills her father, as she hands each member of the court a different flower, she casts her speech in the form of a prayer, a request to remember: “There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray, love, remember”. Antigone, another daughter, also addresses the gods and turns them into the law she follows to bury her brother. What is the relation then, between Antigone and Ophelia? And what can they both teach us about remembering as the payment of debt? 3. In “Notes Upon a Case of Obsessional Neuroses”, when discussing the case of the rat man, Freud compares obsessional ideas to dreams. That is, the obsessional defense, the thoughts, is a formation of the unconscious, and encodes the very inheritance from which the subject wishes to escape. And indeed, Hamlet seems to tell us something similar in two instances in which he wishes to escape his destiny: “I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams” he complains to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and, while later in his famous soliloquy he asks: “to sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub: For in that sleep of death what dreams may come”. What, the, can Hamlet, then, teach us about the relation between the musings of the obsessive, which he builds as defenses and his familial inheritance? Good Luck!
