He often gives him fatherly advice, and shows affection for Hamlet in ways that an uncle would. However, Hamlet soon discovers that Claudius has been lying to him, and Claudius’ real motive is to kill Hamlet in order to exterminate all possible threats to his reign.
The Oresteia by Aeschylus, is a series of three Greek tragedies centered around the Atreides Curse. This curse began with King Tantalus, a son of Zeus, feeding the Gods his son, Pelops, and Demeter who was so distraught over her missing daughter, did not realize her meal was human. The first play in the Oresteia begins with Agamemnon arriving home from Troy with two slaves.

But, due to his hesitation and deep religious beliefs, he decides not to kill himself because God says one will go to hell if they commit suicide. Even after the host of Old Hamlet tells young Hamlet that the cause of his death was because of his uncle, Hamlet’s uncertainty kicks in and makes him doubt his own father.
