At this early point in the text it is clear that Hamlet is weighing the benefits versus drawbacks of ending his own life, but also that he recognized that suicide is a crime in God’s eyes and could then make his afterlife worse than his present situation. With the death of his father it pulls Hamlet into a deep depression to when he can’t think of anything other than death. Newell explained, “In essence, many of Hamlet’s thoughts revolve around death and this early signal to his melancholy state prepares the reader for the soliloquy that will come later in Act III.” In other words, most of the play is about death, so in the soliloquy Hamlet goes into detail about wish of dying if it wasn’t for it being a sin to end your own life.
