King Claudius provokes Laertes into challenging Hamlet to a duel that will insure his death, “ A chalice for the nonce, whereon but sipping, if he by chance escape your venom’d stuck, our purpose may hold there” (4.7.160-162). The decay reaches its peak when the court of
This all leads up to Hamlet getting his revenge. Hamlet can finally put his plan into action now that he is back in the reach of Claudius. Claudius is told that Hamlet is back and that destroys Claudius’s plan to have Hamlet murdered so he needs a new plan.

They are going to brag about Laertes being amazing at fence so obviously Hamlet is going to challenge him.
The bell invites me./ Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell/ That summons thee to heaven or to hell.” (2.1.62-64). Macbeth heard the bell and went to commit the murder; so that he will become king himself. Macbeth explains how Duncan will not know that this bell is his death bell and Duncan is off to heaven or hell.

Secondly, Macbeth listened to the witches equivocations.

Eventually, Hamlet shows his father a play and Claudius realizes that Hamlet is clearly aware of his murder. Outraged Claudius sends Hamlet away to England. In the play, Hamlet has a long relationship with Horatio. “Now might I do it pat, now he is praying, And now I’ll do’t.” (Hamlet 3.3.77-79). Hamlet kills Claudius and he later dies.
In this passage from the play, Hamlet reveals that since he can’t show his emotions and take action, he plans to have the actors perform a play that is similar to his father’s murder to entice a reaction from Claudius to determine if he is in fact the murderer. This clever plan of Hamlet allows it to be known just how intelligent he really is. But this plan also allows a view on yet another theme in the play, revenge. Revenge is a major key in Hamlet simply because a great amount of the plot is based on vengeance. In this particular portion, Hamlet is planning how to reveal Claudius so he can partake in revenge.
Hamlet is second guessing himself and his actions. He wants to get revenge for his father’s death, and kill Claudius. The opportunity has presented itself to him multiple times, but Hamlet always becomes fearful and allows his conscience to take over. He says, “thus conscience doth make cowards of us all.” This line is so amazing because Hamlet could be acting rational for so
The play Hamlet is one of the most-famous plays written by William Shakespeare. This play dealt with madness, revenge, mortality, deceit, religion, and much more. Overtime, this paper will explain why Hamlet is so upset. Hamlet first learned that it was his uncle, Claudius, who had murdered his father. “Haste me to know’t, that I, with wings as swift as meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge” (I.v.23).
The most he does in the beginning is the play within the play that he has the actors put on that basically reenacts his father’s death to try and get a reaction out of Claudius and Gertrude. Hamlet does not really gain momentum to get revenge until he hears about Young Fortinbras towards the end of the play. In 4.4 Hamlet delivers his soliloquy that states that while Young Fortinbras is killing thousands for nothing at all, he himself does have something that is worth killing for to him. Although he not only exacts his revenge in the end he also loses his life in the process as well after killing off Claudius, and giving his blessing for Young Fortinbras to become the next king of
Hamlet faked his madness after learning of his father’s death. He felt betrayed by his mother who married his uncle, shortly after King Hamlet’s death. Prince Hamlet promised revenge to avenge his death thus he looked for a plan. He decided to feign madness as he spoke with Polonius so that Claudius questions him. The rest of the play questions Hamlet’s motives and whether he is, indeed, mad or acting.
Hamlet was so furious with them for telling Claudius what they knew about Hamlet and so when Hamlet had the chance to send them to England, he seized the opportunity. Hamlet was originally sent to England by Claudius so that he would be killed, but once again events took a slight opposite turn. Hamlet meets these pirates and pays them, so that he can go back to Denmark and infuriate Claudius with the fact that he is back. Meanwhile Hamlet refused to let Rosencrantz and Guildenstern join him on this journey because he switched the execution letter so the king of England would kill Rosencrantz and Guildenstern instead of Hamlet and that’s exactly how the events unfolded. Hamlet hates how Rosencrantz and Guildenstern act as sponges to Claudius meaning once they tell Claudius as much as they know about Hamlet, then they are cut off.
