The ghost tells Hamlet that King Claudius is culpable of regicide – thus, setting Hamlet on his path for vengeance. Through his quest for vengeance, Hamlet peruses how he will kill King Claudius; in turn, he kills numerous characters such as Polonius, Rosencrantz, and Guildenstern instead. Although Hamlet claims to have put on an antic disposition (1.5.173) to further his plans, his madness seemingly becomes more real. For example, in a dialogue between Hamlet and Queen Gertrude, Hamlet is able to see the ghost while she looks upon a vacant space (3.4.105-139). Although Hamlet follows the instruction of his father, his questionable madness leads him to the answer of his questions – such as the guiltiness of King Claudius.
These scenes are arguably the most important in their stories and relates them closely together. In Hamlet, Claudius kills King Hamlet which upsets young Hamlet. After meeting his father 's ghost, Hamlet had to investigate further and see if his uncle is guilty. In Gladiator, Commodus kills Emperor Marcus his father because he was going to give the throne to Maximus. Maximus is very upset by this because he thought of Marcus as a father and decides not to honor Commodus as emperor.
Hamlet is disgusted by the invest going on in his family and is soon set out to kill his uncle. His father’s ghost comes and speaks to him and encourages him to seek his revenge. Once he sees his father would agree with the idea of killing Claudius, he has a stronger urge to do it. Hamlet and his father were very close so talking to the ghost and obeying it seemed very important to him. Everyone around Hamlet seemed to be quickly over his father’s death and he was the only one still holding
We can see that Hamlet explores death in every facet of the play from many different angles and how he develops his definition of death from the materially to morality perspective. At the end of the play, Hamlet reaches his goal– avenges his father’s murder– and kills the king, but it costs his own life and life of many others. The last word of dying Hamlet to Horatio is “the rest is silence” (5.2.356) and by this, he may mean that he eventually found peace in death and became free of his
Hamlet, in the play Hamlet is made out to be crazy but in reality he is not grieving correctly. He is constantly faced with death and hardships and almost never catches a break. While Hamlet is not exactly in the denial stage, he is certainly in the dead center of the other four stages. When someone has been through everything that Hamlet has, it is obvious that one would be furious. His Uncle, Claudius, killed his father so that he could be king and then proceeded to marry his mother.
Hamlet commits to the revenge seeking of murdering King Claudius when he writes “So, uncle, there you are. Now to my word… I have sworn’t” (I.v.117-119). After speaking with the ghost, Hamlet swears to go after Claudius. Hamlet is convinced by the ghost to kill King Claudius. If Hamlet wasn’t so upset or angry about his dad dying, he wouldn’t feel the need to end Claudius.
