Hamlet says “That (he) the son of (his) dear father murdered,/ Promoted to (his) revenge by heaven and hell...” / . Hamlet says that he wants to send Claudius to hell because he did not give his father a chance for confession which will send his father to hell. That’s why hamlet is showing his revenge because he want Claudius, the same fate as his father. Hamlet says, “...and so he goes to heaven and so am i revenged that would be scanned: A villain kills my father, and for that, I his sole son, do this same villain send Heaven…/ And am i then / revenged / To take him in the purging of his soul,/When he is fit and seasoned for his passage?”/.Hamlet also admits to Ophelia that he is wants revenge by saying in line 135 of Act 3.1.“I am very proud, revengeful, ambitious, with more offenses at my beck than I have thought to put them in imagination to give them shape, or time to act them in… / So it is proved that Hamlet’s primary motivation is to kill the destroyer of his father’s life, that being his Uncle
He claims that his killer is Claudius. Hamlet sets out to find out if the ghost is truthful (which he is), and then to get revenge. Along the way he ends up causing 6 unnecessary deaths, including his mother’s. He finally gets revenge by killing Claudius with a poisoned sword and poisoned wine, but not before being poisoned himself. IMPORTANT SCENE - When Hamlet interacts with his
When the ghost of King Hamlet appears and tells his son that Claudius killed him by pouring poison in his ear, Hamlet does not act straight away he takes his time to think about what the ghost told him. He wonders whether it is a good ghost or a bad ghost. He plans things out wanting the new king to be embarrassed for what he has committed. When the group of actors come to town, Hamlet says to one of them, "Dost thou hear me old friend? Can you play The Murder of Gonzago?"
Another example is during Hamlet confrontation with the ghost when he says “wings as swift, As meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge” (I.iv.35-37). Eagerly, Hamlet describes how he wants the ghost to tell him his story so he can kill King Hamlet’s murderer faster than people fall in love; the ghost is even speaks of how aspiring he is. This helps convey how yearning and anxious Hamlet is for getting revenge; his main goal and the climax of the book is him killing Claudius. Based on Hamlet and his actions throughout the book, his intent and objective is retribution for his
King Hamlet’s ghost in Hamlet plays a very significant role in Shakespeare’s play even though he only appears briefly in the very beginning. King Hamlet’s ghost furthers the play in many ways. He affects action by setting the play in motion, he affects the theme of revenge, and he helps develop other characters, specifically his son, Hamlet. He sets the play in motion by causing the wheels to spin inside of Prince Hamlet’s head, the ghost is the whole reason for Hamlet trying to extract revenge upon his murderous Uncle Claudius who is now the King of Denmark. The ghost affects the theme of revenge by causing Young Hamlet to be seized by vengeance, the whole play turns into a story of Prince Hamlet trying to avenge his father’s wrongful death.
Throughout the play Hamlet continues to act insane and even dies with the act continuing. Even after Hamlet gathers all the evidence that proves Claudius is the murder, Hamlet continues to behave in a strange way. When he mistakenly murders Polonius he does not react as a sane person would. This act enrages Laertes, who then wants to avenge his father’s death. Driven to madness by the murder of his father, Laertes, with the help of Claudius conspires to kill Hamlet.
The evolution of Hamlet is quite surprising he begins as a young leader with the world in his hand, to a mad who becomes gript with revenging his father’s death. The revenge theme is acted upon throughout the story and is essentially what drives Hamlet. He believes that Claudius has killed his father (we later find out this is true), this begins his investigating. “Hamlet O, from this period forth, my opinions be wounded, or be nobody value!” Hamlet 's search to revenge his father 's death blinded his ethics and intelligence and main to his early death. It can be argued that Hamlet is the most complex character Shakespeare has ever written, there has been many debates revolving around his insanity (real or fake).
Through the confrontation/realization, the protagonist either learns from his mistake or dies (resolution). Hamlet, however, has no control over the events which eventually lead to his destruction. The audience witness the anti-heroic qualities of Hamlet that appear after the delay: he plots to damn his uncle's soul, he kills Polonius, he sends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to death
Removing Hamlet’s cautionary exemplar would significantly impede a teenager’s apprehension of a critical life lesson. Towards the end of the play, Hamlet finally receives his chance at revenge in the form of a fencing match against Claudius. Although he kills Claudius, a poisonous sword wounds Hamlet, and he exclaims that “O, I die, Horatio./ The potent poison quite o’ercrows my spirit”(5.2.352-353). Revenge distorts Hamlet’s mind to the extent that he challenges Claudius to a fencing match, even though Claudius is out to kill Hamlet. As a result, Hamlet dies, and, in turn, illustrates that revenge hinders logical decision making, and induces dire repercussions.
He also hopes the village of Claudius reaction to the death of King stage reveals that conscience-stricken. Claudius leave the room because he could not breathe and dimmed his vision for the lack of light now convinced that Claudius is a villain. Hamlet resolves to kill him, but also notes the village of conscience doth make cowards
