A great example of hamlet not being a coward would be when he goes to talk to his mom and he ends up killing polonius. He was losing his mind and his conscience did not affect him because he knew he was going to when he heard something move. He also did not let his conscience affect him when he was planning to kill claudius because her mother married his uncle and it was insest and weird. He wanted to kill claudius because the ghost also his father in death form told him that claudius killed his father to have the kingdom and his mother all to himself. Hamlets conscience told him to kill claudius and grew hatred for him so his conscience and every thought he had told him to kill and that
He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time. The ghost also tells him that he fell asleep in the garden and Claudius poured poison in his ear to kill him.

When Hamlet is talking to his mother, he hears someone behind a curtain in his mother's room. Assuming this to be Claudius,listening he stabs the person behind the curtains and kills him without first checking.And unfortunately, it was Polonius who was listening to the conversation between Gertrude and Hamlet and Polonius was killed instead of Claudius. The final time Hamlet tries to kill Claudius, he succeeds . This occurs during the last scene of the play.But,what Hamlet did not know is that he has already been poisoned by Laertes’s sword causing Hamlet to die soon after killing Claudius and this all comes down to hamlet being a tragic hero , because everything that happened to him , was mostly suffering through the entire play.

The second thing that the ghost told Hamlet was that he should do no harm to his mother, even though she married her husband’s murderer.
“Man pleaded innocent by reason of insanity for the murder of his mother”(Gross). Although the case of the man murdering his mother is not entirely similar to what Hamlet does they do share some similarities. In William Shakespeare’s Hamlet , Shakespeare uses the idea of a someone murdering one of their own family members in his play. In Hamlet the once ruler of Denmark ,king Hamlet, is long dead before the play begins with everyone thinking his cause of death was from the bite of a snake This is proven to be a lie however, when Ghost of king Hamlet visits his son Hamlet and reveals to him that his true killer is Hamlet’s uncle ,the new king of Denmark, Claudius.

In the famous play Hamlet, by Shakespeare, Hamlet devises various plans to avenge his father’s death. Throughout these several scenes, Hamlet causes the suffering, as well as, the death of many others, who do not have anything to do with King Hamlet’s murder. However the murderer of his father is killed, Hamlet was not justified in killing so many innocent people along the way. First of all, the ghost of Hamlet’s father, King Hamlet, tells Hamlet within his first appearance as a ghost to avenge his death by killing his murderer, Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius, but to leave Queen Gertrude, Hamlet’s mother, out of it. He informs Hamlet that killing Claudius would be appropriate and with reason, considering the previous circumstances in which led to how King Hamlet ended up a ghost, but harming Gertrude would be unacceptable, as she is innocent and has not done any wrong, besides agreeing to engage in an incestuous marriage, that is.
The play Hamlet by William Shakespeare illustrates the tragedy of revenge between characters in different perceptions through their actions. In entire of the story, melancholic Hamlet tries to revenge for his father that has been kill by his uncle King Claudius. However, the situation changes when Hamlet killed Polonius by accident. At first, Hamlet may want to find evidence to prove whether Claudius is the one who kills his father or not because he wasn’t too sure about it. As it states that, GHOST.
They notice that it looks a lot like the dead king and decided to bring Prince Hamlet to encounter it. At this point the ghost finally starts to talk to someone.

He swears to complete the Ghost’s request and he makes the guardsmen who saw him talk to the Ghost to swear to secrecy.
However, Hamlet thought Claudius is behind the arras, so he kills him (Polonius) directly. After Polonius, the conflict between Gertrude and Hamlet became fiercer and Hamlet lost himself more. From the personal view, Polonius’s death is one of the victims in this revenge, but this is also what he deserves because he used to be the Old King’s councillor whereas he is helping Old King’s murder to hurt Old King’s son. He is smart but he is not loyal, therefore, he died in the right path. After that, Polonius’s daughter, Ophelia died.
