Hamlet shows some signs of insanity in these few examples. The very first quote in this paragraph goes to talk about how Hamlet is depressed about his father’s death and his mother’s remarriage. Hamlet is wishing that his flesh would melt and that he would die. Just in that one quote of Hamlet saying these things you can infer that he is insane, even in the slightest of ways. Throughout the story you see more than enough examples to prove this theory.
“The serpent that did that fathers life/Now wears his Crown.”(Shakespeare 44,45) The ghost spoke. “For me with sorrow I embrace my Fortune.”(Shakespeare 404) Says Fortinbras. These scenes depict on how they both got their fortune. Claudius wanted the crown and Gertrude so bad that he acted and got both by killing the previous king, who was his brother. While Fortinbras took over he walked into a room where Claudius, Hamlet, and Gertrude were dead, so he took action and claimed the throne and land.
In the beginning of Hamlet, Prince Hamlet is summoned by his father 's ghost to come talk to him outside of Elsinore(Roberts 1263). The ghost of King Hamlet, tells Hamlet how he was murdered and who the murderer is(1265). The ghost tells Hamlet that Claudius poured poison in his ear while he was sleeping in the garden. The ghost asks Hamlet to set out to get revenge on his murderer. Marcellus, Hamlet’s good friend, experiences a bad feeling when he sees the ghost, “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” (1.4.90), Marcellus says as he quickly realizes the corruption that is happening in Denmark after King Hamlet 's murder (1263).
The climax where the hero has to almost encounter death. In Hamlet, things are different as he is poisoned by the sword which is used to kill Laertes. However, he is able to kill Laertes before Laertes kills him. He is also able to kill Claudius who has prepared poison for him. As the audience watches this part, they have fears that Hamlet will take the poison which Claudius has prepared (Bright Summaries, 2015).
Hamlet sees his father, King Hamlet's ghost, who informs Hamlet that he was murdered by Claudius, Hamlet's uncle. In frustration, Hamlet then undertakes the task to avenge his father's murderer. Emotions holds the greatest power in Hamlet, the tragedy. The reasons being is that Hamlet takes revenge on his uncle, Ophelia commits suicide as a result of her father's death, and both Laertes and Hamlet show their affection for the deceased
Shakespeare uses sleep not as a peaceful resting state, but to reveal Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s guilty consciences. Macbeth is given prophecies throughout the play that prove his guilt and shame. In the beginning, Macbeth’s hunger for power is ignited by the prophecies from the witches. He likes the scheme of killing Duncan so he will be closer to the throne. As the play continues, he realizes how dreadful they actually are.

Two people in particular in the play Hamlet are very responsible for the “rotting in the state Denmark.” The two people are Claudius and King Hamlet also known as the ghost. Claudius has demonstrated many actions in this play that show he is guilty and also does not make a good king because of the actions he has made in the passed and present. As for King Hamlet, returning in ghost form shows that the rotting of his body still lingers and haunts Denmark. Unknown to many people in Denmark, Claudius is the reason why King Hamlet is dead. The main rottenness that is still in Denmark is the death of King Hamlet and who caused it.
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.
While Claudius actually poured poison in the late King Hamlet’s ear, the Ghost also says that he has poisoned “the whole ear of Denmark” (1.5.36) with his lies. This meaning is used metaphorically to represent Claudius’ use of words to manipulate and destroy, as well as to enhance his power. The image of daggers is frequently used between Hamlet and Gertrude. Not only the actual word, but the violence and anger with which Hamlet speaks to her is powerful, like a weapon. When they are fighting in her bedroom, Hamlet verbally attacks her saying she lives “in the rank sweat of an enseamèd bed, / Stewed in corruption, honeying and making love / over the nasty sty” (3.4.93-95).
