Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone. Shakespeare gives Hamlet these struggles in the play to amplify the mental and psychological events that make the reader feel bad about what all happened to Hamlet. Hamlet eventually kills Claudius like his father told him to, but only did it after his mother, Gertrude, drank the poison that Claudius meant to give Hamlet. This is a result of external action from all the sorrows that was building up in Hamlet’s life. This brings us to our next character, Gertrude, Claudius’s wife and Hamlets
Hamlet describes vividly his disgust for his mother, Gertrude, in his first soliloquy in the first act of this play.

I believe that Ophelia was not treated right because she didn’t do anything wrong and she still lost everyone that she cared about. In DOC C is when Polonius was dying and I think that it was wrong in the first place because if Hamlet would have killed the king right when the ghost came to him Polonius would not have died. When Hamlet is talking to Ophelia he says that he never loved her and that she was stupid to think that he ever did (DOC D). After Ophelia goes crazy she starts singing and while she is singing she says that Hamlet promised to marry her (DOC D). In the end Ophelia did nothing and didn’t deserve how Hamlet was acting towers

For Antigone in the play Antigone by Sophocles, this was a no-brainer. Sophocles writes about Antigone, Oedipus’s daughter as she decides to bury her dead brother Polynices, against her uncle Creon’s wishes, who is also the king. The king’s pride forces him to punish Antigone and her sister Ismene, which results in the death of Antigone, his son Haemon, and his wife Eurydice before he realizes his wrongdoings.

First, her boyfriend dumps her, then he calls her vulgar names, and lastly, he kills her father. Just one of these traumatic events could make a character go mad, but the combination of the three justifies Ophelia’s madness. The use of these three tragic events in Ophelia’s life makes her madness reasonable. The first event to happen that changes Ophelia’s demeanor is her relationship problems with her boyfriend, Hamlet.
