In the play, The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, it is full of revenge. Many things happen through this play but there’s one person or thing that makes the bad things happen. King Hamlet died and his brother took over and even married his wife, Gertrude. The Prince Hamlet does not approve of this relationship because it happened so quick. Hamlet grieves through this whole play because of the death of his father and starts to go crazy.
The play of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is full of many acts of betrayal. One such of these acts is when Hamlet goes against the wishes of his father’s ghost and debates on whether or not he should kill Claudius. Not only this but he also is extremely cruel to his mother and hurts her feelings which were also against the wishes of the ghost. He wanted Hamlet to avenge his death without hurting others along the way and almost everything Hamlet did in the play went against that.
He was to the point where he thought it would just be easier to die than to live with all these struggles. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius killed his father which put a huge burden on his shoulders because he loved his father so much. What made it even worse was his mom, Gertrude, ended up marrying Claudius short after King Hamlet 's death. After the king was murdered, Hamlet saw his father’s “ghost” which told him that Claudius was in fact the one that killed him and that he wanted Hamlet to seek revenge for him by killing Claudius, but not to punish his mother for remarrying. He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time.
When Hamlet is talking to his mother, he hears someone behind a curtain in his mother's room. Assuming this to be Claudius,listening he stabs the person behind the curtains and kills him without first checking. And unfortunately, it was Polonius who was listening to the conversation between Gertrude and Hamlet and Polonius was killed instead of Claudius. The final time Hamlet tries to kill Claudius, he succeeds .
Hamlet was also dealing with a lot of emotions that are hard to deal with not to mention control. Hamlet was all so feeling betrayal in all of his relationships as stated before. Hamlet’s mother moved on to Claudius so fast (less than two months) that Hamlet thought she didn’t love his father the way he thought while growing up or maybe she only married him to stay queen. Then Claudius tells Hamlet to move on and that mourning for this long is unmanly and he should move on because everybody dies. That just pushed Hamlet over the top and he decided to get
Hamlet’s mind was set on killing Claudius to get revenge on his father. While plotting to kill his uncle Hamlet, in a fit of rage, stabbed and killed Polonius while he was hiding behind a curtain.

Later on, Hamlet stumbles upon the Ghost of his father and uncovers the truth of his death that causes Hamlet to act mad to avenge his father’s death. The chain of events that has occurred proves that it has driven Hamlet towards insanity. To start with, Ever since the death of Hamlet Sr., Hamlet is appeared to be in a state of madness as he says, “But I have that within which passeth show, /
The leading force for Hamlet’s behavior to change is his mother marrying her dead husband’s brother two months later. In the play Hamlet states “O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason/ Would have mourned longer-married with my uncle,/ My father’s brother, but no more like my father” ( I.ii.150-152). This explains that Hamlet is frustrated because his mother moved on so fast and it seemed to him that she never really loved King Hamlet. Hamlet also claims that “Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief,/That can denote me truly” ( I.ii.82-83 ). Hamlet is trying to tell his mother Queen Gertrude how he feels after the
The play starts with the death of Hamlet’s father and throughout the story, Hamlet thinks about killing those who murdered his father.

Then, immediately after, Laertes’ sister Ophelia dies which convinces him it is due to Hamlet’s insults and actions. He quickly puts together a plan with Claudius to fight Hamlet as a way of revenge. Laertes seeking vengeance on Hamlet is what drives the plot to its final scene, where the rest of the characters are killed and the kingdom

O, most wicked speed, to post / with such dexterity to incestuous sheets! /
Village bites the dust of wounds from the harmed tipped sword Laertes utilized. "... Hamlet, thou craftsmanship slain... the tricky instrument is in thy, unbated and envenom 'd...

He identifies with an apparition, and this phantom expressed that his dad 's passing was a homicide, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. "
Throughout the play, Hamlet demonstrates a great amount of loyalty towards his father who had passed away all he wanted to do was bring peace to him in his afterlife.
