Shakespeare is a master of the telling of stories When we observe his works we see the struggle of the main characters with themselves and others Many a time there is lack of reason as the protagonists fight the demons which keep them from their goal but the beauty of Shakespeare is that reason is usually portrayed in the form of a fool When we think of fools we think of those with little capacity of understanding but in Shakespeare fools are usually mediators who give us insight to their worlds Fools are not portrayed only as jesters and clowns but those who have a wacky take on situations which develop They add resilience to the story light to the shadows of confusion and humor in the darkest of times For the greater part they are the voices of reason which know all but speak little What they lack in presence they make up for with their few lines full of wit and savvy So let the fools tell their story let their identities be known and let their comments be the windows of truthThe first example of the wise fools are Rosencrantz and Guildenstern There are two texts which contains these characters Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead which tie into each others story lines In Hamlet they are two courtiers that are two fools who surround themselves in analytic contemplation King Claudius summons them to find out what Hamlets intentions are towards him In this process they wish to do as the king pleases but at the same time must not upset their childhood friend by seeming to be spying Their take on it isGuilWe have been briefed Hamlets transformation What do you recollect Ros Well hes changed hasnt he The exterior man fails to resemble Guil Draw him onto pleasuresglean what afflicts him Ros Something more than his fathers death Guil Hes always talking about usthere arent two people whom
