Were Hamlet’s actions justified, or were they not? So, to first start off Hamlet has been really depressed because of recent events in which have happened in his life his father who was the king had mysteriously died, and Hamlet’s uncle Claudius has gone out to marry Hamlet’s mother Gertrude in hopes of being the king to rule over.
