For example, Hamlet, after learning that his father’s death was a murder, wants to be certain that he is being told the truth before taking revenge. Even after confirming that Claudius is the murderer, Hamlet thinks to himself, “And now I’ll do’t…/And so I am revenged,” contemplating whether or not to kill Claudius, and he still is not able to do it (Shakespeare. III. iii. 77-79).
He states ‘tis an unweeded garden’ alluding to the fact that a false king leads to corruption which finally leads to the collapse of the hierarchy. Initially Hamlet has no internal conflict when it comes to avenging his father’s murder, but he is very quickly drawn into contemplation about the world and mortality. Hamlet as a character is enigmatic and it is these aspects of his personality that allow for his pondering of the world. In his Act 3 Scene 3 soliloquy, Hamlet finally reveals to the audience that he is going to honour his fallen father and avenge his death. However, his reasoning behind hesitation is that Claudius will go to heaven with a forgiven soul ‘and so he goes to heaven’.

In the first soliloquy in Hamlet during Act two, scene two, Hamlet discusses the speech the player has just performed for him, and how angry he is that this player who was able to feel such great emotion for someone who meant nothing to him, when Hamlet couldn’t properly express his emotion and he had something terrible happen to him. This hatches the plan of the play in Hamlet’s mind and he finds out that he will be able to see if Claudius is guilty or not when he watches it. When he questions his character stating “But I am pigeon-liver’d and lack gall”(2.2.583) he admits his cowardly behavior and that if he had courage he would have “fatted all the region kites,”(2.2.585). By the end of the soliloquy he comes up with a plan, to make sure that Claudius definitely killed late Hamlet, and the Ghost is not a damned spirit here to taunt him.
· He tells Ophelia he loves her and does not love her, thinks she should never have trusted him but wants her to go away to a nunnery for her own protection. He calls himself a liar, but when he discovers Ophelia is dead, Hamlet's reaction suggests that he did, love her. · · I loved Ophelia: forty thousand brothers · Could not, with all their quantity of love, · Make up my sum. · · Hamlet does not always tell the truth, but there is enough evidence to suggest that Hamlet probably did love Ophelia. 4.

ACT 3, SCENE 3 Introduction This scene (Act 3, Scene 3) is when the play changes. We no longer expect Iago’s plan which is to “Make the Moor thank me, love me and reward me. For making him egregiously an ass And practising upon his peace and quite Even to madness”, to fail or for Iago to give up, because, after putting poisoning ideas in Othello’s mind, the rest is easy. Othello’s thoughts of Desdemona will never be the same again. He’ll always doubt her, for ever.
Hamlet even seems to have forgotten the main reason why he is avenging his father’s death.
