His main goal in the novel is to seek revenge on his father's death, this started when he was visited by the ghost of the old king.

Unfortunately, Macbeth crosses the point of no return after committing regicide, and finds himself in constant fear and suspicion towards everyone around him throughout the entirety of the play.
To be or not to be morally ambiguous is to have the lack of coherence in making moral life decisions. In Shakespeare's play Hamlet, the main character Hamlet goes through a great transformation. Hamlet seeks revenge toward Claudius who he believes killed his father for the throne. In many of Shakespeare’s play there is always a hero and a villain, but in Hamlet, Hamlet plays a pivotal role because he can be viewed as both the hero and the villain. Hamlet is seen as a morally ambiguous character due to the decisions he makes throughout the plot of the novel that ends up leading him to his demise.
Hamlet is stressed over his own father's murder, but he has to plan the right way to murder his Uncle Claudius. At one point, he thought he had finally murdered Claudius but it turned out to be Polonius, the chief counselor to the king . This murder only complicated things for Hamlet and caused him to be more confused about what to do with the situation. Shakespeare decided to depict Hamlet in a way that shows his flaws because it creates drama in the play. Without Hamlet's indecisiveness, the story could have ended very quickly with Hamlet either killing himself, or killing Claudius.
The personality of such characters as Hamlet from William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet is much remarked upon. However, it is even more meaningful to analyze changes in Hamlet’s character throughout the play. As Hamlet becomes more driven in his revenge, his actions lose morality and gain consequences. In fact, Shakespeare uses the relationship between a character’s cruelty and the meaning in the pain they cause to comment on the cyclically destructive nature of cruelty. Evidently, Hamlet is an excellent example of just such a character.
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.
His choice to appear insane drives him to try murder Claudius in an unforeseen way. Hence Hamlet seizes what he believes is his first possible opportunity to kill Claudius and exact his revenge. Upon realizing that it is not Claudius he has killed, but an innocent bystander, he shows no remorse.
As a result, Hamlet strategizes to perform revenge on Claudius for his malefaction. Hamlet, the main protagonist, displays a multitude of dynamic traits that emerge as the play develops. In the tragedy that follows, Hamlet is recognized for being indecisive and is often drawn to difficult questions that cannot be answered with any certainty. The build up of Hamlet’s indecisions begin to become apparent when he questions whether the unknown beyond of death is easier to bear than life. Hamlet’s thoughts of contemplation is shown when he uncovers the internal struggles of life and death.
One internal conflict that Hamlet faces within himself is the fact that even though he agrees to the apparition of his deceased father to kill Claudius, however, he is still uneasy at the fact he could’ve encountered a demon to tempt him. He wants further proof which would help him to take action later on. In Hamlet’s third soliloquy he sates “The spirit that I have seen may be a devil, and the devil hath power t’assume a pleasing shape, yea, and perhaps out of my weakness and my melancholy, as he is very potent with such spirits, abuses to damn me (Shakespeare 529-534).” This further confirms his doubts about his father’s ghost of being either a true apparition or an apparition of the devil. He uses the play The Killing of Gonzago to help
He in the beginning went through depression which is quite normal, when a person dies naturally the first reaction is to get sad but when the ghost (Hamlets father) came and informed Hamlet that he didn’t just die but in fact was murdered, changed the who perspective and thought process of Hamlets decisions. When his anger took over he began to plot and plan how he would extract revenge on his uncle, now step father king Claudius. So when he sees the king praying he thought what a perfect opportunity but later changed his mind because he thought that since he was praying that when he died he would go up to heaven but Hamlet wanted him to suffer just like his father did. So when actors came into town, he thought what better way to mess with his conscience then having what the king did be based on a true story and so the reaction that the king had was exactly what Hamlet wanted. However in the play Hamlet was depicted as a mad man when under the surface he was very smart and calculated.
