Very shortly after the tragic death of King Hamlet, Gertrude, his wife, immediately remarried to Claudius, making the mourning process quite uncomfortable for Hamlet. Hamlet 's act of stabbing Polonius through the curtain, which occurs almost casually in the middle of the tirade against Gertrude 's lust, seems only to increase his passionate desire to make her see her error in preferring Claudius to her first husband. For Hamlet, however, the problem of seeing a genuine difference between his original father and the man Gertrude has called his father assumes enormous significance at precisely this

In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet struggles to cope with his late father’s death and his mother’s quick marriage. In Act 1, Scene 2, King Claudius, Queen Gertrude, and Hamlet are all introduced. Hamlet has just finished publicly speaking with his mom and the new king, and after he is interrupted by his good friend Horatio, who reveal the secret about King Hamlet’s ghost. Hamlet’s soliloquy is particularly crucial because it serves as his initial characterization, revealing the causes of his anguish. Hamlet’s grief is apparent to the audience, as he begins lamenting about the uselessness of life.
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).
Several moments leading to Mercutio’s death, Romeo approaches Tybalt stating he must love Tybalt as family, but Tybalt wants to fight. Confused, Tybalt starts to harass Romeo. Mercutio becomes so angered by Romeo's attempts to just walk away from Tybalt that he declares, “ O calm, dishonorable, vile submission! Alla stocatta carries it away: Tybalt you ratcatcher will you walk!”, (Act 3, Scene 3, line 68-70), and challenges Tybalt himself. However, Mercutio's rash, emotionally driven response is a poor response, not only because fighting on the streets breaks the Prince’s newly decreed law, but also because it leads to his own death.
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).

Due to this, we are promptly informed that deaths will occur. Do the characters have the capability to do what they wish, or simply bounds to play a part in death and desolation? As readers, we simply learn from the characters mistakes and truly take it in as if we were in the character’s shoes and “their course of love, the tidings of their death” (5.3.297). Before long, the Prince finally realizes how much it takes to have love and peace.
The ghost’s appearance has a significant impact on Hamlet’s behaviors and forms his decisions through the play. Hamlet, who is suffering from depression since he is dealing with his father’s death and the hasty marriage of his mother with Claudius, his uncle, became obsessed with the concept of life and death after seeing his father’s ghost. In the first appearance of the ghost, he reveals the truth about the how the king has been murdered, which drives Hamlet to seek revenge, and by revenge killing his uncle. The ghost establishes a dilemma and gives Hamlet time to think about his father’s request.
