Later Hamlet sees the ghost of his father and tells him to get revenge for him by killing Claudius and as he tries to get his revenge it causes the death of the whole family.

Throughout the play Hamlet uncovers horrible deeds his uncle has committed, which were “Remorseless, Treacherous, lecherous”. Hamlet wished to punish Gertrude but was prevented by his father’s ghost. In Hamlet’s soliloquy in Act 3 scene 2, Hamlet will “speak daggers to her but use none” representing his future interactions with Gertrude. Shakespeare uses this metaphor to show Hamlet’s hatred towards his mother and to create tension. In Act 3 Scene 4, Hamlet reveals Claudius’ involvement in his father’s death to his mother, but she thinks Hamlet has turned into a madman.

Hamlet Hamlet is a tragedy play written by William Shakespeare. It is a play that involves numerous deaths. Hamlet is the main character in the play and he is depicted as an insane person. Hamlet faked his madness so as to confuse Claudius and his assistants in order to find the truth about the death of his father. He acted strange when he was around the king and his attendants and this is evident when he tells his friend Guildenstem that "his uncle-father and aunt-mother are deceived" (Shakespeare).
Hamlet was taught to hate Claudius for, in addition to murdering his father, spitefully marrying his mother and taking away the only love of the King’s life; during a long, emotional speech to Hamlet, the Ghost exclaimed that “thus was [he], sleeping, by a brother’s hand of life, of crown, of queen at once dispatched,” (1.5. 75-76). Hamlet begins to despise his uncle for not only killing his father, but for stealing his father’s wife, and perhaps winning his mother’s love. It is often wondered whether Hamlet has inappropriate
