Hamlet demonstrates inadequacy with phrases like “Buz, buz!” (Shakespeare 54), lines from poetry or mistakes in Polonius’s name. However, each of these actions looks like an imitation of madness; Hamlet inkles king’s surroundings he knows about the crime committed against his father. The prince could already have mental problems, but his strange behavior was deliberate and had a goal to take off the “enemy’s”
Iago is by far the sneakiest character in Othello. By using an (act innocent and blind) approach to seek revenge on his commanding officer and colleague who took his place. Iago’s deception can be spotted as early as act two. “I do love Cassio well and would do much to cure him from this evil” (Shakespeare 2.3.150-151). This is where Iago tells Montano how much he loves Cassio and wants to help him, but as the reader you know that he hates Othello and Cassio bit tricks Montano and others to get his revenge.
The old Hamlet look-alike explains the odd circumstances of his death and the events that followed. His demand of revenge happens after he warns his son about the horrifying story he was not supposed to tell and before the prince meets again with his companions to
The play starts with the death of Hamlet’s father and throughout the story, Hamlet thinks about killing those who murdered his father. Through Shakespeare’s words, “To be, or not to be,” it is clear that death is inevitable to the characters in the play (Shakespeare). We see the characters dying and being buried, for instance, Ophelia and Polonius. Moreover, the theme of death is present in the play when Hamlet plans the death of Guildenstern and Rosencrantz. Therefore, the theme of death is apparent in Hamlet from the beginning of the play to the final
The ghost affects the theme of revenge by causing Young Hamlet to be seized by vengeance, the whole play turns into a story of Prince Hamlet trying to avenge his father’s wrongful death. The ghost of King Hamlet helps to develop his son’s character by setting him on a path, he doesn’t tell Hamlet exactly what to do, but he tells him enough of the story to make Young Hamlet rageful and hate filled. First, King Hamlet’s ghost affects action when he first appears in the play. When he first appears, he doesn’t even speak. When he
“To be or not to be?” is the question Hamlet often asks himself along his journey of revenge, where many emotional encounters and obstacles continue to test him. Violence arises when Polonius dies, Ophelia drowns herself, and the killing of Claudius after the intense fencing match between Hamlet and Laertes. These violent decisions all relate back to Hamlet’s scheme of how he plans to retaliate for the death of his father, whether he uses mental or physical sources of violence. Shakespeare creates violence throughout the plot to contribute to the overall meaning of the play. Each of these violent segments have the readers asking questions to figure out what the purpose and reasonings are behind all of these heartless acts of brutality that take place during the play.
His curiosity is evidence that the corrupt thoughts planted by the witches have been festering in his mind. The conversation continues and Banquo says, “So I lose none/ In seeking to augment it, but still keep/ My bosom franchised and allegiance clear,/ I shall be counselled” (2.1.26-29). He fears what Macbeth may do, but too selfish to admit it. Not only are his walls against the influence of evil wearing down, but he is not helping Macbeth build his own walls back up. As Macbeth’s friend, and a noble man, Banquo should intervene, yet with vile thoughts running through his own head, he turns a blind eye.
This is why he is considered a significant presence in this play, because despite his rare sights in the text, he is the germ of all actions and character developments. His death and actions has led to many plot developments, such as the many losses and the insights gained through conversations between characters. A large source of tension is the marriage between Gertrude and Claudius; Gertrude is the mother of Hamlet and the widow of the King, who wrongfully married Claudius. Jealousy is another character flaw of Hamlet, who gained this imperfection from the Ghost. Hamlet was taught to hate Claudius for, in addition to murdering his father, spitefully marrying his mother and taking away the only love of the King’s life; during a long, emotional speech to Hamlet, the Ghost exclaimed that “thus was [he], sleeping, by a brother’s hand of life, of crown, of queen at once dispatched,” (1.5.
So, this is my rewiev of one of the most famous story written by Wiliam Shakespeare, Hamlet.I took this from my very own point of view, and this is what the story is about.

Hamlet is a play that incorporates betrayal, vengeance, misguided love, and death into its plot to showcase the downfall of Hamlet. There are many questions that arise within the plot that are left una nswered such as the significance of the Ghost and why Hamlet hesitates to take revenge on Claudius. But, a critical question to ask is how revenge influences the interactions between people. Answers to this question are evident throughout the play and they give context to Hamlet’s affairs with Ophelia and her father Polonius, as well as his interactions with Claudius. The structure of this question and its answers are divided based on how the plot itself progresses; as Hamlet becomes exceedingly disconnected from his surroundings, his flaws
