When Hamlet discovered that it was King Claudius that had killed his father, Hamlet maps out a process in which he would go about the death of Claudius. He ponders and thinks of the repercussions that may arise in every situation. At times, he inadvertently lets his emotions get the best of him. For example, his plan of revealing Claudius’s guilt through the observation of the self-reflecting play called “Mousetrap” works as Hamlet had intended. However, Hamlet’s impatience overcomes his control, allowing Claudius to realize the motives of Hamlet.
If Hamlet had just acted, Claudius would have died and gone to hell. Even if Hamlet killed Claudius after he got up from the play, Hamlet would have survived. William Shakespeare intentionally made Hamlet not willing to act in order to show how human he is. Hamlet grieves for his father and sees all the wrong in the play. Hamlet is scared of death, but also is very depressed in life.
“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.
For God’s love let me hear!.” (1.2.185-195) Hamlet is in awe of what his best friend tells him. This tells the audience that Hamlet is already well aware of Claudius’ actions against his father. When Hamlet himself sees the ghost of his father, his father tells him to avenge his death, that Claudius indeed murdered his own brother. “ Ghost. Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.”(1.5.25) Though there may be a plethora of violent scenes within Hamlet , one of the most important scenes in relation to the story would be in Act V. This act is one of the most passionate, especially for Prince Hamlet himself.
To test Claudius’s guilt, Hamlet adds a scene reenacting the murder of Hamlet’s father. Claudius abruptly leaves the play, and afterward, tries to pray. When Claudius is praying, Hamlet is considering killing him, but decides not to because he wants to kill him in sin so that he does not get a chance at last confession. They also all end up dying later in the story due to a sword fight and poison. In conclusion, I think that Hamlet 's actions were justified because if you put yourself in his place, the possibility of murdering your father 's murderer would undoubtedly be an option that would be in anyone 's head.
However, he murdered Polonius impulsively. Hamlet’s inability to make decisions properly led to his impulsive actions, which caused the death of the people he cared about. He had many opportunities to kill Claudius and complete his revenge before anyone else died, but he refused to act. Hamlet himself realized that and said, “But I am pigeon-liver 'd and lack gall / To make oppression bitter.” Hamlet didn’t feel he was capable of righting the wrong Claudius committed. If Hamlet had accepted Claudius as king and forgiven his mother or had completely committed to carrying out revenge, the play would have ended much differently, but Hamlet’s indecisiveness presented him from doing either.
He is also making a comment on how horrible of a king Claudius is and how disgusting he feels that he was lied to behind his back and as all of this is going on the people who was watching the fight was seeing this event happening. When Hamlet was limping to the king and when he was saying all of the quote Hamlet took his pointed sword and through the torso area Clausius was stabbed by Hamlet and then reaching for the cup he poured every last bit of the liquid into Claudius mouth and he instantly died. Hamlet oh poor Hamlet suffers from the pain of everything and looks at Horatio and told him the he is dead repeats that about 3 times that he was dead as the poison slowly taking over his body, he quickly told Horatio to not hurt himself and to stay alive so he could tell the story of what he saw and every last breath and every last heartbeat Hamlet is sadly gone. Horatio is now on a mission that he is to tell the tragedy of Hamlet. In the play, The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Hamlet makes a lot of violence in the scenes of this play this also lead the reader to think did Hamlet do all of this so that he could live and get his revenge?
William Shakespeare’s titular character in the play The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is a young prince who is overwrought with grief after his father’s death. The king’s sudden death has a negative impact on Hamlet’s state of mind and psyche. Through Hamlet’s thoughts and soliloquies, the audience can see the main character’s obsession with spirituality, death, and mortality. Hamlet’s fixation on life after death causes his descent into madness. Because of this, spirituality, death, and mortality are the most important themes in Hamlet.
Act 1 is a considered as a turning point in the play’s plot. Yet, before defining the content of the extract or examining its form, one should highlight its context. Hamlet’s doubts are confirmed as he musters up his courage and decides to take action. The ghost speaks to him, claiming to be his father’s spirit, come to rouse him to revenge his death, a “foul and most unnatural murder” (1.5.30). Hamlet is appalled at the revelation that his father has been murdered, and the alleged spirit of the former king tells him that the only “villain” to blame is Claudius “who now wears his crown”.
King Hamlet comes to Hamlet as a ghost to tell him to kill Claudius, but it takes Hamlet the whole play to finally fulfill his father’s wish since he fears the consequences of murdering the king of Denmark. This affects Hamlet’s mental health and relationship with his mother as he considers committing suicide as well as blaming his mother to help him recover from his father’s death. Through Hamlet’s anger towards his uncle, depression, and blame towards his mother in conflict with his fears of killing his uncle, having God mad at him, and hurting his mother, Shakespeare explains that people often desire revenge, but feel too fearful to fulfill it. Claudius becomes king after killing Hamlet’s father and marrying his brother’s wife, establishing Hamlet’s negative attitude towards him throughout the play. The king also talks condescendingly towards Hamlet in multiple instances, making Hamlet more angry that his relative does not
