In Hamlet, Shakespeare discusses the idea of corruption in order to show how it can contaminate a person’s heart and way of life. Hamlet faces many dilemmas throughout the novel, in one scene he even debates whether it is even worth it to live anymore: “ To be or not to be—that is the question:/ Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer/ The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,/ Or take arms against a sea of trouble” (3.1.64-67).

Being Hamlet 's girlfriend, Ophelia was on the receiving end of most of his deluded hatred after she was told to spy on him by her father and the king, “I shall obey my lord” (1.3.145).

Hamlet chooses to retaliate by calling Ophelia a whore, “Get thee to a nunnery: why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners?” (3.1.121-122).

The Reason Behind His Madness Hamlet gets himself into an utterly dire situation as his madness is totally self caused and entirely avoidable. He chooses his own fate when he is wrapped up in the idea of destroying his uncle to avenge his father. The thought of carrying out this revenge drives him to actually become mad and ruin almost all of his ties of friendship and his love for Ophelia. Hamlet’s demise, and the demise of loved ones around him, is self-inflicted and self-destructive. In the play of Hamlet, Hamlet, the main character, is the son of the King that has just recently died and Hamlet’s mother quickly thereafter remarried the Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius.

Mad call I it, for, to define true madness, What is ‘t but to be nothing else but mad” II.ii.94-96. This thought is brought about after Polonius speaks with his daughter Ophelia; his daughter claims that a worrisome looking Hamlet grabbed her and continued to stare at her without speaking. This scared Ophelia which agonized her father. Hamlet also effectively convinces Polonius of his madness by accusing him of being a fishmonger, speaking of the procreation of maggots on a dead dog, and pretending not to recognize Polonius.
