Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone. Shakespeare gives Hamlet these struggles in the play to amplify the mental and psychological events that make the reader feel bad about what all happened to Hamlet. Hamlet eventually kills Claudius like his father told him to, but only did it after his mother, Gertrude, drank the poison that Claudius meant to give Hamlet. This is a result of external action from all the sorrows that was building up in Hamlet’s life. This brings us to our next character, Gertrude, Claudius’s wife and Hamlets
Additionally, in scene two act III the scene that may have any effect on the direction of the play is the introduction of the Ghost appearing to Hamlet and telling him that Claudius his uncle and brother to his father killed the king father to Hamlet and asks him to revenge his death. This makes Hamlet to distrust almost everybody around him except Horatio his close friend. From the scene, Rosencrantz asks “Good my lord, what is your cause of distemper? you 338 do, surely, bar the door upon your own liberty, if you deny your griefs to your friend.”. Hamlet “340 Sir, I lack advancement.” and Rosencrantz wonders “How can that be, when you have the voice of the king himself for your succession in Denmark?” (2.3.
What makes the motives of the two young men so ironic is the fact that Hamlet just so happens to kill Polonius, father of Laertes, while in the process of trying to get revenge on his father. Due to the fact that Hamlet is being so adamant in avenging his father’s death, he speaks to his mother in a way that makes it seem as if he wishes to bring some form of harm to her. His mother calls out for help in fear Hamlet will kill her. Polonius is near and calls for help. When
Also, Hamlet displays his anguish at the Queen for dishonouring his dead father since “Almost as bad, good mother, as killing a king and marrying his brother” (Shakespeare, pg. 121). In this statement, Hamlet expresses how, through the marriage to her husband’s murderer, Gertrude is a symbol of dishonor and damaging her relationship with the prince. Hamlet is disgusted by Gertrude’s actions and recognizes her not as his mother but the queen and wife of Claudius, the murderer. The respect revered by children to their mother is not evident between Hamlet and Gertrude.
Drink of this potion. Is thy union here?/ Follow my mother” (V.ii, 318-320). The moment that Hamlet learns from both his mother and Laertes that Claudius is the cause of their deaths, Hamlet finally comes to the realization that he was waited too long, which has resulted in the death of two he cares closely for. He understands that he has received enough validation, which is why he is finally able to kill Claudius. In fact, it is fitting that Claudius is killed with the same weapons that he had poisoned and rigged in order to ensure Hamlet’s death.
In William Shakespeare’s, “The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark”, a young prince named Hamlet is depressed and misguided. His father, the King has died and his mother Gertrude has already remarried his uncle Claudius. Hamlet is absolutely torn until his father’s ghost visits the castle and entreats Hamlet to avenge his death and kill his uncle King Claudius. Hamlet begins to test Claudius with plays and when Claudius finds out, all he has by his side is his councilor Polonius. Polonius tries to entrap Hamlet in every way possible, even by using his daughter Ophelia.
At the end of this scene, Claudius reminds Laertes about their plan to murder Hamlet. In act 5 scene 2, Hamlet reveals to Horatio that after he found about Claudius's plan, he switched the letter Claudius sent urging the king of England to kill Hamlet with the one Hamlet wrote. Hamlet wrote down Rosencrantz and Guildenstern's names instead and to have them killed. Hamlet said that he doesn’t feel bad about arranging their death because they were disloyal toward Hamlet and were doing everything that Claudius told them to do. A courtier enters and tells Hamlet that Claudius has set a fence match for Hamlet and Laertes.
Then Ophelia finds out that Hamlet killed her father and she goes crazy and she starts singing songs about hamlet and starts claiming that he promised to marry her. “He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone…. Quoth she, ‘Before you tumbled me, youpromised me to wed.” (DOC D.). Hamlet’s actions aren’t justified because maybe if Hamlet didn’t kill Polonius, she wouldn’t have gone insane. 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.
Tragedy continues as Hamlet and Laertes battle at a duel set up by the King. King Claudius has set up a plan to poison Hamlet. The queen drinks Hamlets poisoned wine and dies. The king is to blame. Hamlet is furious and kills King Claudius, Laertes strikes Hamlet with his poisoned sword and then is killed by his own poison.
