Hamlet’s madness is a product of the death of his father, which supplements the claim that fathers can impact their sons in a destructive manner. Because of his vulnerability, Hamlet was liable to do almost anything to avenge his father’s death. However, his father did not show that same loyalty.

In Star Wars, Luke didn’t know his father, but in Hamlet, Old Hamlet was Young Hamlet’s role model. Luke was also unaware of who had killed his father, while Young Hamlet had figured out who had been behind the murder of his father and made himself certain of it too. Luke was also unaware of how his father had died, but Hamlet had figured out, thanks to his father’s ghost, how his father had been killed. Even though Star Wars’ revenge plot may be the same as Hamlet’s revenge plot, they’re very different from each other. Although Luke knew that he had a father once, he did not know his father personally.
