Madness resides within each and every individual, it rests within the deepest part of humanity, waiting to be unleashed by traumatic events. Madness causes a person to tarnish their original morality and embody the essence of the irreconcilable product of their sanity: otherwise known as insanity. As a result, those afflicted will begin to indulge in many acts that their former selves would consider to be taboo. In the Shakespearean tragedy, the title character Hamlet is seeking to avenge his father Old hamlet by taking King Claudius 's life. Unfortunately, as Hamlet embarks on his conquest for revenge, he encounters a vast spectrum of hardships ranging from betrayal to solitude.
Claudius possesses all the qualities of a villain: ambition, greed, jealousy, selfishness,dishonesty,tyranny. He does not hesitate before he kills his brother being driven by jealousy and power thirst. Claudius is an example of the monstrous-like people of the society becauseClaudius commits the biggest of dishonesty: towards his own blood. The problem with Claudius is that between honesty and betrayal he chooses betrayal, between love and selfishness he would go for selfishness. All that selfishness causes his life to lack love and that is what leads him to destruction.

In Hamlet, madness serves to “convey the disillusion and despair that pervades the characters, and leads them to rash and self-destructive acts” (Lidz 33). Hamlet’s despair drives him to madness, which, in turn, drives him to decimating his relationships with his mother and Ophelia, and ultimately, to death. Hamlet’s descent into insanity explores the “possible reasons of degeneration of the human mind”, the idea that ultimate desolation, unwavering grief, may be a driving force for developing insanity (Bali 84). Hamlet’s disparaging tendencies are a result of the degeneration of his mind, an unpleasant side effect of his cavernous grief and longing for his The influence of his madness is exemplified when Laertes does not, in the end, condemn Hamlet for his, Ophelia’s, and Polonius’s deaths.
