It also contains what is perhaps his most famous line: “To be or not to be: That is the question” (III, i, 56). In this play, Hamlet is conflicted throughout pretty much the entirety of the action. This uncertainty leaks over into the plot of the play as well as the mind of the reader. Unlike Macbeth, this play does not spell out the deceptive actions of its main character. While Macbeth plainly states in asides and dialogue with his wife that he is planning to mislead other characters, Hamlet does not openly speak of his tricks.
He was resentful of the circumstances of his father’s death but it isn’t until Act 1, Scene 5 that his anger causes him to abandon who he truly is. He attempts to throw away his hate of deception in order to avenge his father’s death. His obligation bestowed upon him by his father’s ghost, which he does not resist, begins to overshadow his obligation of morality. Despite this, it still takes Hamlet a long time to take action which suggests that he struggles with which obligation he should fulfill. Hamlet is more than devastated about his father’s death.
In order to call the important shots that impact an entire nation, a king needs a thorough thought process to reach the proper decision. This is where fault can be found with Hamlet. Fortinbras claims that Hamlet would make a good king, stating “For he was likely, had he been put on, / To have proved most royal” (5.2.413-415). While this quote may make Hamlet appear as a great future king, Fortinbras had never met Hamlet. Fortinbras was not able to get an accurate feel for what type of person Hamlet was day in and day out and therefore Fortinbras could not pick up on Hamlet’s key fault.
It doesn’t matter to him that, once alone with it, the ghost could “assume some other horrible form,/which might deprive [his] sovereignty of reason” (1.4, 72-3). Hamlet wants to see his father and so he sees him. This, more than his opinion on his mother or uncle, solidifies Hamlet’s tendency to never adjust his opinion of someone. In some cases, he supports this by claiming to know the truth of a situation, but in many cases he feels this way without any proof. Even prior to the ghost’s appearance, he doesn’t like his mother or uncle.
After finding out all this information, Hamlet was in a dark spot that lead him to acting insane to investigate the accusations that his father had made. It was hard for Hamlet to act crazy because he was still grieving over his father 's death and his mother not showing that she cares. Hamlet also lost Ophelia which makes his situation even worse than it was because he has no one in his. No family, no girlfriend, no one. Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone.
Hamlet and Masculinity What defines society’s portrait of a man? Perhaps it is his fighting skill, his ability to lead, or his valiency. Within the play by William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Hamlet is a prince who struggles with his father’s death and lacks any sense of responsibility. He spends the whole play making excuses and never facing his problems head on. Eventually, he gets revenge on King Claudius, kills Laertes, and dies.
Victor really isn't very happy after his dad left, he seems him as if he is the bad guy. Like his dad left, because he didn't want to be around them anymore and didn't care about them at all.

In Act IV, Hamlet encounters alienation and nothingness when he meets a Norwegian captain under the command of Fortinbras. When Hamlet asks the captain about the cause and purpose of the conflict, he is shocked to learn that the countries ' armies will go to war over "a little patch of land / That hath in it no profit but the name" (IV.iv.98-99). After Hamlet recovers from the shock of the captain 's honesty, he is dumbstruck by the thought that Fortinbras would sacrifice the lives of thousands of men for an admittedly inferior "patch of land." At this point in the play, Hamlet is still struggling with his own inaction, unable to kill Claudius even though he knows of his guilt. Hamlet has a good reason to kill Claudius, yet he fails to do it.
Hamlet was unable to see the other characters as he once had because the memory of his father occupied his perception. During Hamlet’s apology to Laertes, this form self-communication was also seen. Hamlet stated in the apology, “Wasn’t Hamlet wronged Laertes? Never Hamlet” (5.2.179). In this instance, Hamlet asks and responses to questions from the third person perspective.
Pip becomes ungrateful because he cannot accept that Magwitch is actually his benefactor and not Miss Havisham. He hated Magwitch even though that man has done so much for him. Pip said, “I know nothing of his life. It has almost made me mad to sit here of a night and see him before me, so bound up with my fortunes and misfortunes, and yet so unknown to me, except as the miserable wretch who terrified me two days in my childhood.” From this point, Pip just only looked at the past time when Magwitch threatened him and not the present time when Magwitch has brought good fortune to his life and made him become a gentleman. His hatred towards Magwitch also inclined when Pip easily influenced by Herbert saying, “Then you may rely upon it,” said Herbert, “that there would be great danger of his doing it.
Before his father died he was trying to help but supporting him kept getting more difficult as time passed until he became incapable of helping. This can be seen in quotes right after his father died when he says, “I could see that he was breathing--in gasps. I didn’t move.” He knew his father was dying and did not help. After his father dies he realizes that it was not that he didn’t want to help, he was incapable of it. A quote says, “No candle lit in his memory.
“sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all of the lives I’m not living.” (pg. 113) Thomas is depressed. He lost his loved ones in a bombing, and he’s the only one that survived. It causes him a lot of pain and suffering. “It’s a rule that we never listen to sad music, we made that rule early on, songs are as sad as the listener, we hardly ever listen to music.”
SO hard that some people kill themselves and you can’t take it lightly. Sometimes it’s even hard to approach a depressed person because they are so insecure.
