As it is defined in Cambridge Dictionary, a soliloquy is “a speech in a play that the character speaks to himself or herself or to the people watching rather than to the other characters”. Shakespeare uses this device of the soliloquy to portray the Renaissance character who tries to understand his own actions and thoughts, who is in the middle of a struggle, voicing emotions and ideas that he would never share with the other characters of the play. Soliloquies allow the audience to know something more about the character, about his emotional state or his inner consciousness, to know things that the other characters don’t know yet. The audience has the ability to identify with the character, to be a part of him, to have a certain degree of intimacy. Also during soliloquies, the character always tells only the truth that reveals his inner thoughts and emotions.
