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.
He did not offer help to Romeo very much after Romeo had gotten banished. Nor did he get the message to Romeo in time for Juliet’s evil plan to take place. Friar quotes “O deadly sin! O rude unthankfulness/ Thy fault our law calls death: but the kind prince./” (3.2. 24-25).
Most people see William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a romantic love story of two teens who killed themselves for each other, but who is really to blame here? Friar Laurence is at fault for their deaths because he married Romeo and Juliet, did not have a good plan set up, and left Juliet alone in the tomb. One reason why Friar Laurence is at fault is because in Act Two, Scene Three, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet secretly. Friar Lawrence told Romeo he had doubts because they had just met, also, Romeo had just been so in love with Rosaline the day before, and should wait.
“Man pleaded innocent by reason of insanity for the murder of his mother”(Gross). Although the case of the man murdering his mother is not entirely similar to what Hamlet does they do share some similarities. In William Shakespeare’s Hamlet , Shakespeare uses the idea of a someone murdering one of their own family members in his play. In Hamlet the once ruler of Denmark ,king Hamlet, is long dead before the play begins with everyone thinking his cause of death was from the bite of a snake This is proven to be a lie however, when Ghost of king Hamlet visits his son Hamlet and reveals to him that his true killer is Hamlet’s uncle ,the new king of Denmark, Claudius. The play then follows Hamlet as he tries to take revenge for his father’s death.
(DoubtAboutWill.org.) This casts great doubt to the theory that Shakespeare wrote all or any of the work credited to him and gives rise to alternate theories of authorship. In addition to Shakespeare’s shaky and almost illegible handwriting, the spelling of Shakespeare’s name is inconsistent. The legal documents attributed to the man we assume was William Shakespeare mostly bear the last name Shakspere without the first “e” or the second “a.” (DoubtAboutWill.org.) However, none of his literary work ever used this spelling of his name.
Hamlet’s suicidal tendencies show he is a weak character. Hamlet shows suicidal a couple of times through out the play. One time is in act one scene two when he recognized that it is against God’s commandments to self-slaughter. Here hamlet is over dramatic and expresses his feelings by thinking about killing himself. “O, that this too too solid flesh would melt” soliloquy (I.ii.129–158) and the “To be, or not to be” soliloquy (III.i.56–88).
In act (IV. I. 8-20) Gertrude is telling Claudius that her son is insane and has murder Polonius. “As mad as the waves and the wind when they struggle together in a storm. In an insane
Many of Hamlet 's traits may appear to be weaknesses but they are, at second glance, strengths which aid him in his attempt to do away with Claudius. His refusal to murder the "incestuous, murderous, damned Dane" as he prays in Act 3, Scene 3 was a wise decision. If the prince had indeed killed the king he would have been immediately
When Mercutio is stabbed everyone thinks he is just joking “Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch.” (1565) Until he drops dead. When Romeo sees he has died, he gets furious and goes out and finds Tybalt and challenges him to fight, resulting in Tybalt being slain by Romeo, which in turn causes Romeo to be exiled away from Verona and his love Juliet. If Mercutio and Tybalt would of never fought, then Mercutio would not of died and Romeo would of not have killed Tybalt and he
