Dramaturgy » Values
The Values in question translate the story’s true significance.
Values range from -3 to +3.
Values appear in pairs in which the first value is negative (down) and the second is positive (up).
In this analysis of Hamlet it is interesting to note how the VICTIMIZATION/REVENGE and FALSEHOOD/SINCERITY values progress in opposite directions.
We can thus conclude that the more Hamlet avenges himself, the falser he is. On the other hand, the more sincere he is, the more he is victimized.
