People with depression are often at risk of attempting suicide. We are shown the true extent of his depression during his soliloquies, his first soliloquy is in Act 1, Scene 2: “O! that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the Everlasting had not fix’d His canon ‘gainst self-slaughter!” Here he states he wishes his flesh would melt off and he could die. This scene also conveys his fear of god and the afterlife, the only reason he doesn 't is that god might punish him for it.
Hamlet’s father's ghost appears and ask to avenge his death. Hamlet is torn between killing his uncle or not because it is a sin. Dealing with all this, Hamlet contemplates suicide. Hamlet's choice of diction reveals his tone of uncertainty toward life and death. Hamlet begins with “The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”(III.i).
Are hamlet's actions justified or not justified that is the question? In this essay I'm going to explain if his actions are justified through different documents. My opinion is that his actions were justified and some examples why are because his uncle is the one who killed his father and his mother married his uncle not to long after. In document A the ghost of his father says "Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder" what he means is he wants hamlet to revenge his soul (killing the uncle). Were starting this off with Gertrude.
"Remember Me" is the first document and this document is basically telling us about Hamlet 's fathers ghost and that Claudius or Hamlet 's uncle had killed Hamlet 's dad for many reasons. Also then Hamlet made a promise to his father 's ghost that he would revenge his death. Also Hamlet had to revenge
This sentence really means that Romeo and Juliet’s new, young love is no longer as perfect as it once was; there is now something that has “stained it”, or has ruined how pure the love once was. Due to this act, the people of Verona banishes Romeo, a punishment more awful than all else. Romeo compares his banishment with that of death, emphasizing exactly how awful his punishment is with the metaphor, “There is no world without Verona walls / But purgatory, torture, hell itself. / Hence ‘banishèd’ is ‘banished from the world,’ / And world’s exile is death” (Shakespeare III.iii.18-21). By comparing the consequences of his actions with death, Romeo accentuates how awful his future might be.
His obsession also leads to uncertainty and he ends up killing those around him. Specifically, his uncertainty is shown when he is given the opportunity to kill his uncle, but he ends up postponing his revenge because he believes that Claudius is praying. Although one might argue that a character’s obsession may lead to happiness, an analysis of Prince Hamlet in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and Guy Montag in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, depicts the theme of uncertainty when a character leads to downfall due to their
Gladwell in his piece, David and Goliath Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants, suggests people should use their negative situation to their advantage. He discusses this idea exemplifying people with dyslexia who used their unique abilities to their advantage when they struggled with reading and writing. Gladwell’s theory of overcoming difficult situations does not apply to Shakespeare 's character Hamlet because he is unwilling to overcome and improve, after his father’s death, leading to his ultimate downfall. At the beginning of Hamlet, King Hamlet has suspiciously died and his son, Hamlet is overcome by the death of his father, causing him to constantly grieve and not heal. Hamlet’s mother decides to remarry King Hamlet’s uncle, which Hamlet strongly disagrees with the marriage and views it as
Hamlet’s first soliloquy occurs in Act 1, scene ii. Before giving this monologue, Hamlet is faced with the difficult truth of his dad being murdered in cold blood. The soliloquy reveals Hamlet’s true feelings about his new “father” that his mother has married. Some thematic issues revealed in Hamlet’s soliloquy are religion and reprisal. After giving the monologue, the reader learns about Hamlet’s hatred towards Claudius.
Hamlet’s suicidal tendencies show he is a weak character. Hamlet shows suicidal a couple of times through out the play. One time is in act one scene two when he recognized that it is against God’s commandments to self-slaughter. Here hamlet is over dramatic and expresses his feelings by thinking about killing himself. “O, that this too too solid flesh would melt” soliloquy (I.ii.129–158) and the “To be, or not to be” soliloquy (III.i.56–88).
He is mad, and because he is they way he is, depressed and isolated he won 't search for help which will cause him to make that bad decision. This proves that anger lead to bad decisions.

Killing the old man was a bad decision.
