Dos gigantes carismáticos de la historia y la literatura: el rey David y Hamlet

Mary Anne McDanel García

Resumen


Este artículo explora los paralelos en las historias del Rey David y de Hamlet, príncipe de Dinamarca, en un intento por ilustrar el carácter de su carisma. Compara su liderazgo, sus dilemas internos, sus relaciones y obligaciones en tanto soldados, amigos, enemigos, hijos y amantes. Los dos se asemejan en varios aspectos, entre ellos sus rasgos bipolares, tal como lo define el experto mundial en liderazgo, Kets de Veris (2006). Entretanto, autores como Bloom (1998, 2003), Caruso (2007) y Frontain & Wojicik (1980) mencionan que el rey David y Hamlet son figuras de mucho interés en tanto ilustran el conocimiento de las sagradas escrituras que poseía Shakespeare, además de su capacidad y la de los autores del antiguo testamento para reconocer una buena historia. Este texto intenta sintetizar cómo la completa y profunda naturaleza humana de estas figuras monumentales sigue llamando la atención y despertando la admiración.
