King perfects this age-old writing tactic and uses it to keep the reader in a constant state of unease, with little to no idea as to how the situation will play out. King will often lead the reader down a certain path only to pull a complete 180 on them and will turn the story on its head, all for the purpose of keeping the reader on their feet.

The earliest of his internal conflicts is when his mother married his uncle, Claudius, in such a short window of time after his father’s death. He expresses his feeling in his “heart, for I must hold my tongue” (1.2.160). This is an important quote because it is important to understand because it allows to the reader to see that Hamlet cannot speak to anyone about how he feels.

With these various stressors in his life, it gives more evidence and reasoning to why he often experienced constant signs of depression and suicidal thoughts.
