Repeated references to ears and hearing in Hamlet are an example of a literary:

A. action

B. motif

C. theme

D. pattern

A

Answer: B. motif

A motif is a recurring symbol with a figurative meaning in a text. A motif is a literary device that can be used to help an author to establish a mood or even develop a theme as a result of its symbolic meaning. Motifs are very good tools in the development of the central theme of a book or a play. Motifs are very traceable as they come with evidently purposeful clues. A good example of motifs is in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the case of ears and hearing. In Hamlet hearing and something doesn’t mean it is true.
