As Claudius repents, Hamlet feels as though it's the best time to kill him until he says: And so ’a goes to Heaven; And so am I revenged. That would be scanned. A villain kills my father; and for that, I, his son, do this same villain send To heaven (3.3.73-78) Essentially, Hamlet wanted to murder Claudius because he was the Old King’s murderer. But, after he realized that Claudius was
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.
He murdered his father, although he did not know it was his father. Oedipus was just an unlucky man with a horrible fate. He had to be banished, because he made a law that who ever di this would be banished, so he banished himself without knowing. He was only truly guilty of murder, not of incest or
Now I am going to talk about when Hamlet was denying with himself about everything… in document B he starts calling himself a vogue, peasant, ass, whore and a coward. Then he starts saying “To do’t…. O, from this time forth, my thoughts be bloody,or be nothing worth!”. So hamlet is thinking that he should kill him and him thinking if all this is even worth it or if he shouldn’t even try. The reason that hamlet is calling himself all these names and everything was because of his father’s death.
One internal conflict that Hamlet faces within himself is the fact that even though he agrees to the apparition of his deceased father to kill Claudius, however, he is still uneasy at the fact he could’ve encountered a demon to tempt him. He wants further proof which would help him to take action later on. In Hamlet’s third soliloquy he sates “The spirit that I have seen may be a devil, and the devil hath power t’assume a pleasing shape, yea, and perhaps out of my weakness and my melancholy, as he is very potent with such spirits, abuses to damn me (Shakespeare 529-534).” This further confirms his doubts about his father’s ghost of being either a true apparition or an apparition of the devil. He uses the play The Killing of Gonzago to help
“What’s worse, looking jealous or crazy”? Hamlet’s cynical, melancholy, and full of hatred for his uncle Claudius and his insane behavior is evident throughout the play. Hamlet is obsessed with avenging his father’s death. Hamlet is indecisive and hesitant, but at other times, he’s prone to rash and impulsive acts of violence. His madness is shown through his strong love for Ophelia and the depths he is willing to take to show how much he loves her.
Thus he lashes out at everyone, alienates his wife, loses her to her madness and despair and ultimately finds himself utterly alone having lost everything yet he is unable or unwilling to surrender or admit defeat and so instead he fights to the bitter end.” (Evelyn O’Connor, Macbeth’s Soliloquies). The tragic hero’s hardship is not always wholly deserved. The punishment does often exceed the crime. Some argue that Macbeth does not entirely deserve to die as a result of his actions. Macbeth is a play of tragedy.
"Together with all forms, moods, shows of grief, That can denote me truly. These indeed seem, For they are actions that a man might play. But I have that within which passes show. These but the trappings and the suits of woe" (I.ii.82-86) this quote shows the depression that Hamlet was engulfed by, making the sorrow that he felt over his father's death, obvious to the readers. In act 1 scene 5, Hamlet was told by his father's ghost that his death was not a random but a murder committed by Hamlet's uncle; this information only added to Hamlet's depression and gave him an immense desire to get revenge.
When someone becomes an adult, they are forced to make decisions that not only affect themselves but affect others around them. These choices can be potentially volatile and can directly harm people who look to you for guidance. In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Friar Lawrence fails to make thoughtful choices for others and makes careless decisions that hurt the people who trust him for advice. Throughout the tragedy, Friar Lawrence is characterized as a responsible priest; however, he finds it impossible to make reasonable choices, which causes the unfortunate demise of the lovers. As a direct result, Friar Lawrence’s decisions and reckless actions should be investigated for their deaths.
However, he murdered Polonius impulsively. Hamlet’s inability to make decisions properly led to his impulsive actions, which caused the death of the people he cared about. He had many opportunities to kill Claudius and complete his revenge before anyone else died, but he refused to act. Hamlet himself realized that and said, “But I am pigeon-liver 'd and lack gall / To make oppression bitter.” Hamlet didn’t feel he was capable of righting the wrong Claudius committed. If Hamlet had accepted Claudius as king and forgiven his mother or had completely committed to carrying out revenge, the play would have ended much differently, but Hamlet’s indecisiveness presented him from doing either.
Hamlet: The Original Rebellious Teenager “Melancholy accounts for Hamlet’s inaction. Its immediate cause is simply that his habitual feeling is one of disgust at life and everything in it—himself included. Such a state of feeling is inevitably adverse to any kind of decided action.” - A.C. Bradley Arguably one of William Shakespeare’s most complex plays, Hamlet chronicles the story of a Danish prince who must avenge his father’s death by murdering the man who killed him and usurped the throne, his uncle Claudius. According English literary scholar, A.C Bradley, Hamlet’s inability to kill his uncle is due to his constant hatred of life and himself, and because of this feeling, he is subconsciously unable to fulfill his promise. Hamlet’s inability
