“Thy mother’s poisoned./ I can no more. The King, the King’s to blame” (V.ii.344-45). On Laertes death bed he is completely regretting his choices to trust Claudius the king. He knew that he had made the wrong decision and put his emotions of anger and revenge before his intelligence. If he hadn't chosen to team up with Claudius then he knows not everyone would of died maybe even none of them especially the queen.
To Fear, or Not to Fear, Death “To be, or not to be, that is the question” (Shakespeare 53). This is one of Shakespeare’s most famous lines, where Hamlet questions whether he should live or die—to kill himself or not. Yet, Hamlet answers this question himself: he cannot commit suicide because of “the dread of something after death” (Shakespeare 53). According to many religions, killing oneself is a sin, a one-way ticket to a torturous, fiery afterlife. Using this belief, Hamlet appears to be concerned about the fear of death, a common matter that people are anxious about.
Hamlet even becomes suicidal at one point. Hamlet contemplates suicide “To die, to sleep -/ To sleep perchance to dream” (III.i.72-73). He compares sleep to dying and dreaming to the afterlife. Queen Gertrude tells Hamlet that he has made his father angry “Thou hast thy father much offended” (III.iv.12). Hamlet becomes very upset because King Claudius is not his real father.
Hamlets pride for his father became wrath for claudius and his self-gains. Wrath is an intense emotional response. Wrath is also known as anger. Claudius kills wants to kill Hamlet because Hamlet knows about how Claudius killed King Hamlet. Unlike killing King Hamlet out of jealousy and pride he wants to kill Prince Hamlet purely on knowing too much.
Death is a scary thing to Hamlet because nothing is really known about it. He says death "puzzles the will" in line 25 showing that if it weren't so uncertain his will would be to die. Because of the same uncertainty, he says "conscience does make cowards of us all" (line 28), reinstating that if he didn't have a conscience that made him scared of the uncertainty he would already be dead. He says sleep would end his heartache in lines 6-7, sleep being a euphemism for death. He also says he wished for death in lines 8-9.
In the end Hamlet kills Claudius however, how he kills him is ironic because Claudius killed Hamlet’s father with poison and Claudius gets killed by his own poison. In Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, the main character Hamlet is faced with both internal and external conflicts that influence him throughout the play. One internal conflict that Hamlet faces within himself is his issue of trust which was exemplified by him being uneasy about his father’s apparition and not sure if it was true or a demon created by the devil himself. Another internal conflict he faces is his tragic flaw, which is his inability to make a solid decision. Hamlet was also faced with his external conflicts; the largest is his ongoing battle with Claudius and his plan to kill him for this
This shows that they fought constantly and made the two scared that their parents would only get more mad. They felt they would only hurt more people by saying they were married. Act 2 scene 2 line 70 “If they see you they’ll murder you”. This shows that they were so scared that they fought so much so they kept it a secret so the other would not be killed. This shows they unleashed their demise because their parents inspired this fear.
In his first soliloquy, he expresses his intense grief and inner conflict of wanting to commit suicide but not wanting to be punished by God. From this the audience can infer one of Hamlet’s fatal flaws; he is indecisive. He is constantly searching for certainty, since he is unable to make decisions without it. Although Hamlet is wary of the story given to the public to explain the King’s sudden death, it is not until the ghost confirms his suspicions and he uncovers the truth that he vows to “Remember thee!”. He suspects foul play was involved, yet he never acts on this uncertainty until certainty is provided for him.
The lines that remind me of this topic is from Act 4 lines 14-15: “ Oh heavy deed! It had been so with us had we been there.” Hamlet just killed his loves father because he thought he was the king. This reminds me of this message because even though the king did escape death that time he will not be so lucky in the end.
Hamlet then asked this question to Laertes because he is mad about Laertes’mourning. Another difference can be seen when Claudius’s reason for killing King Hamlet was so he could take his rightful place on the throne, while Hamlet kills Claudius due to his father's ghosts telling him to do so at the beginning of the play. Where Hamlet and Fortinbras differ is that Hamlet was concerned with his position of the throne and defending his father's glory. Whereas the Fortinbras is concerned with conquering and ruling Denmark. This redeems Hamlet’s character by highlighting his
Claudius kills King Hamlet and sends Hamlet into a dark place inside his mind where an obsession with death and possibly avenging his father 's suspicious undoing. After his father 's death, Hamlet 's mother marries Claudius almost immediately. The inappropriately timed union angers Hamlet and his feeling of betrayal causes him to believe that love and compassion are not an important or real part of any human or relationship. His depressive and morbid outlook assures him that death is the only thing that is certain in the world. In his early soliloquies, Hamlet expresses longing for suicide "O that this too sullied flesh would melt, thaw, and resolve itself into a dew” (I, II, 130) and
