Williams Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, describes the tragic death of King Hamlet, whose son becomes very depressed and impacted by the death of his father, causing him to plan revenge honoring his father’s death.The son, Hamlet, constantly is mourning his father and is depressed about how no one seems to be mourning for him. This causes Hamlet to lose his relationships with people in his family because he keeps to himself, rather than voicing his suffering to others in effort to heal. This inhibits his recovery and perpetuates his depressive state. Malcolm Gladwell disagrees with Hamlet’s way to handle grief and suggests a more proactive way to improve their situation. Gladwell in his piece, David and Goliath Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants, suggests people should use their negative situation to their advantage.
Thus he lashes out at everyone, alienates his wife, loses her to her madness and despair and ultimately finds himself utterly alone having lost everything yet he is unable or unwilling to surrender or admit defeat and so instead he fights to the bitter end.” (Evelyn O’Connor, Macbeth’s Soliloquies).

Shakespeare does so by writing, “To be or not to be, that is the question: / Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer / The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, / or to take arms against a sea of troubles… / ...To die: to sleep” (3.1.56-60). Hamlet here is questioning his own existence and his purpose to live. He is now reached a stage of despair where he is losing sight of truly why he must be alive. This emotion becomes so prominent as he continues on more describing life’s difficulties and how easy it would be to put a permanent end to them by ultimately putting an end to his own life.
