The Queen Gertrude thought of his action to be rash and bloody. When Hamlet heard this he strikes back at his mother with a rude comment saying that it was almost as rash and bloody as murdering a king and marrying his brother (3. 4. 26-28). Hamlet shows some signs of insanity in these few examples.
Hamlet has warned her earlier that whatever he tells her in the future will not be true but, when he tells her he does not intent to be with her it starts the beginning of her madness. When Ophelia returns all his letters and gifts he tells her that he has never loved her and that she should “get thyself to a nunnery.” This is one example how his mood changes throughout the play. Then after all this her father, Polinous, is murdered by Hamlet. The Hamlet is sent away to England All of these actions result in her feeling such stress that she becomes insane in the end. In the final scene Hamlet dies, but before he does he leaves some important words, “As thou 'rt a man, Give me the cup!
The big question is “Are Hamlet’s actions justified.” Well Hamlet was both justified and not justified. Some things he did were for a reason others were just possibly because he was pretending to have gone insane. Examples of this are the way Hamlet treated his own mother, Gertrude, and the way he treated his love Ophelia, one thing he is not justified in is delaying the murder of his uncle and his mother’s new husband Claudius. But the thing that is justified is actually killing Claudius. Hamlet is not justified by treating Gertrude the way he did.
Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.”(3.1) It is the prince saying that romeo will be exiled for killing tybalt but not killed for avenging his cousin. Tybalt is the cause that Romeo was sent away. Tybalt is also the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because Juliet is then forced to marry paris so she pretends to be dead. The nurse says(unknowingly that she’s faking it)”She’s dead, deceased, she’s dead. Alack the day!”(4.5.)
Not all people respond with hate and revenge, some people let themselves get walked over but not hamlet. Hamlet does not respond to injustice too kindly. He wants revenge for his father's death, wants to set things right, help out whoever is in charge of people receiving karma by taking things into his own hands. His main goal in the novel is to seek revenge on his father's death, this started when he was visited by the ghost of the old king. The ghost said to him “revenge his foul and most unnatural murder” the ghost of the old king wanted Hamlet to seek revenge on claudius for his ‘unnatural” murder of the kind.
He had just killed king Duncan and he says that he will never be able to wash all of the blood out of his hands. He feels so guilty that he thinks that what he did will never get better. He is seeing the consequence of listening to the witches. This is an example of guilt because at that point he would do anything to take it back. Another example of guilt is the hallucinations that Macbeth has after he kills someone.
Old Hamlet is the king of Denmark, his brother Claudius was jealous . He wanted to be the king and he wanted Gertrude which is Old Hamlet’s wife. The king went into Garden to rest and Claudius poured poison in his ear. Everyone thought he died from a snake bite or bee sting. They had his funeral, Claudius was not crying and had a strange look on his face something didn’t seem right between between Hamlet’s mother and uncle.
Claudius approaches Hamlet asking him why he can’t get over his father's death(1.2.64-164). Hamlet asks Laertes why he is exaggerating over the death of Ophelia(5.1.267-276). Also, Claudius and Hamlet both kill a King, King Hamlet is killed by Claudius while Hamlet kills Claudius. The first difference is noted when Claudius is curious about Hamlet’s mourning because he is scared that Hamlet will take revenge on him. Hamlet then asked this question to Laertes because he is mad about Laertes’mourning.
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia’s love for Hamlet ultimately leads to her madness. In order for Ophelia to build her relationship with Hamlet, she must go against her father’s orders considering he strictly prohibited her from seeing him. Hamlet then breaks up with Ophelia saying, “I did love you once,” and then tells her to go “to a nunnery,” causing Ophelia to feel a great amount of betrayal. Ophelia is already heartbroken, and now Hamlet murders her father which was too much for her to handle. The love Ophelia had for Hamlet was one that is considered as infatuation; Ophelia was young and did not know much about love,
Hamlet struggles dealing with his mother because he feels very strange being around her, doesn't get full attention from his mother, and treats her poorly. After Hamlet was very upset towards his mother, he stabs Polonius hiding while behind the tapestry and Ophelia gets mad. Ophelia dies after her father’s death by drowning in the river. When Hamlet and Horatio discuss death, Hamlet admits that he switched the letters. Then, Claudius manipulates Hamlet into a duel with Laertes whose sword is poisoned.
