This claim proves to be evident because throughout the play, Hamlet tries to avenge his father’s death and goes insane doing so. This is apparent in Act III of the play when Gertrude and Hamlet are in a room of the castle and Hamlet sees the ghost of his father again. Gertrude, however, does not see the ghost because it is simply a figment of Hamlet’s imagination. (Shakespeare III.IV.131-135).

We can see that Hamlet explores death in every facet of the play from many different angles and how he develops his definition of death from the materially to morality perspective.
Retribution causes the characters in Hamlet to act indiscriminately through resentment and feeling, instead of through reason. It depends on the standard of an eye for an eye; this activity is not generally the best unfortunate chore. Fortinbras, Laertes, and Hamlet were all hoping to retaliate for the passings of their fathers.

Since the leaders of the three noteworthy families were each killed, the eldest children of these families felt that they expected to make some sort of move to retaliate for their dad 's passings; this need to convey honor to their particular families
