The ghost of Hamlet's father is the one who told Hamlet everything, that his uncle killed him and he wants hamlet to get revenge as it says in Document A. In document E Claudius prays and Hamlet says "now he is praying; And now I'll do it and so he goes to heaven" so there for he delays the killing like I said in the other paragraph. In the final scene of the play Hamlet does a fencing match with Laertes and he has a sword with poison on it. After the fencing match Hamlet quickly stabs Claudius and makes him drink the poison drink. Hamlet also got scratched by the sword and Laertes.
After Hamlet kills Polonius, Laertes faces the same problem that Hamlet does —a murdered father. And that 's where the similarities end. While Hamlet lollygags and broods over the murder for much of the play, Laertes takes immediate action. He storms home from France as soon as he hears the news, raises a crowd of followers, and invades the palace, saying "That drop of blood that 's calm proclaims me bastard" (Shakespeare 97). In other words, not being upset by his father 's death would prove that his mother was stepping out on his dad.
However, Hamlet soon discovers that Claudius has been lying to him, and Claudius’ real motive is to kill Hamlet in order to exterminate all possible threats to his reign. Claudius’ role play affects the entire country of Denmark, and he convinces the people that he is the rightful king, when he is not, and has murdered his brother for the throne. Gertrude, too, takes on a role; throughout the play, she seems oblivious to her wrongdoings. She claims that she loves Claudius, and did not just marry him for political reasons. However, in in act 5, scene 4, Gertrude finally admits that she has wronged her son and her first husband, and in her conversation with Hamlet, she says, “O Hamlet, speak no more.
Shakespeare starts the theme of death with the death of King Hamlet, which stimulates Hamlet to seek for revenge with his various soliloquies considering death from various points of view and certainly leads to a dramatic ending. In William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, Hamlet not only has to deal with the revenge for his father’s death, but also has to make a decision between life and death. The first death theme in Hamlet is from the murder of King Hamlet, who is a ghost
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown. The ghost of the king said, “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life Now wears his crown.” To hamlets face. I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too.
Polonius didn’t receive any justice for his death. Hamlet was able to hide his crime because he has the power and the title. Another example is when Ophelia died. In Act 5, scene 1, churchyard two gravediggers were digging Ophelia’s pit grave and they were arguing weather Ophelia should be buried in the churchyard when it looks like her death was a suicide. The first gravedigger ask, “Is she to be buried in Christian burial that seeks her own salvation?” meaning, it seems like she drowned herself in her own will which is known to be a suicide (V.i.1-2).
If Hamlet had just acted, Claudius would have died and gone to hell. Even if Hamlet killed Claudius after he got up from the play, Hamlet would have survived. William Shakespeare intentionally made Hamlet not willing to act in order to show how human he is. Hamlet grieves for his father and sees all the wrong in the play. Hamlet is scared of death, but also is very depressed in life.
The theme that the real poison is revenge can be shown at the beginning of the play, since Claudius killed Hamlet’s father, he wants to get revenge because that was what the ghost of his father told him to do in order for his father to go to heaven. For instance, in the movie of the play when Horatio and the others show Hamlet that his father’s ghost has been appearing, and the ghost tells Hamlet to follow him, when Hamlet goes to see what the ghost wanted to tell him. The ghost tells him that Claudius killed him by pouring poison through his ear while he was sleeping one afternoon. Poison appears since the beginning of the play, showing that poison would have a meaning in the theme of the play. Claudius killed his brother with poison, and at the end of the play Hamlet actually kills him with poison the same way as he killed his brother.
In the short story, “Lamb to the Slaughter” Patrick, Mary’s husband, goes home and tells Mary that he no longer wants to be with her and their baby. She then proceeds to express her anguish by murdering him and sets up the murder scene so that she would not get caught. Later on, she calls the police and says that her husband was murdered and the detectives try to uncover the murderer and murder weapon. Roald Dahl uses objects and symbols to contextualize his ideas that people go through things innocently without knowing the danger, like a lamb to the slaughter. Now, lamb has come to represent innocence and peace and the meaning of a lamb has come to change in this story where it is used to murder the woman’s husband.
Macbeth speaks with them breifly to be sure that the murder was carried out as he had planned. The murderers assure Macbeth that Banquo's throat has been cut and he is dead: "Thou art the best o' th' cutthroats" (3.4.18). The murderers then leave and Macbeth goes back to the table to see that one seat is left empty, Macduff's seat: :Here is a place reserved, sir" (3.4.47). Macduff's absence is important later in the play. Macbeth then sees Banquo's ghost in one of the chairs at the table: "Thou canst not say I did it.
Laertes got some answers concerning his dad 's passing, and quickly returned home. He stood up to the King and blamed him for the homicide of his dad. Claudius told Laertes that Hamlet was in charge of his dad 's passing. He then chooses to murder Hamlet to vindicate the demise of his dad. He and Claudius come up with a plot to slaughter Hamlet.
I think Hamlet a procrastinator, he is being too cautious or careful. He had so many chances to kill Claudius, but he chooses to fall back. Hamlet putting on the play and seeing Claudius’s reaction is a big clue that Claudius is the murderer. Instead, Hamlet thinks that
