Hamlet also knew that he could not tell anyone that Claudius has murdered his father or that he had seen the ghost of his father because no one would believe him. Throughout the play Hamlet expresses his “madness” an example would be when he meets Ophelia in the court. In the beginning of their conversation he tells her that he once loved her but then is also confused saying that he didn’t love her at all. This is due to the fact that he sees woman as deceivers because of his mother’s relationship with his uncle. When Hamlet discovers that Polonius and the King are hiding nearby he explodes in a fit of rage, violently attacking her verbally and physically almost like a mad person would.
Ophelia drowned in the river, which causes Laertes to ﬂee the room, overcome with grief. With the deaths of his only beloved family members, Laertes is in a rage and is overcome with grief and tragedy. Now that he knows Hamlet killed his father, he also blames Hamlet for driving Ophelia insane, which leads her to her death. So, he is probably on a bloody rampage, wanting to kill Hamlet in an instant. Everyone pities Laertes as his father and sister die; however Claudius uses this as an advantage to have Laertes kill Hamlet.
Hamlet struggles with himself, he begins to act strangely. Just look at the scene with himself and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, he acts strangely, he disrupts normal life in the palace, he too brings chaos to Ophelia's life too. She apparently loses her mind and ends her life with suicide. Polonius is killed. Laertes wants to avenge the death of his father by killing Hamlet.
The guards immediately agree that they must tell Hamlet what they saw. After telling Hamlet what they saw, Hamlet decides he must see this infamous ghost for himself. Before Hamlet can venture to find the ghost he is interrupted with the concerns of his mother and Claudius. They ask him if he is handling his father’s death well since he has been so “bitterly sorrowful lately.” Hamlet answers them by stating, “Nor customary suits of solemn black, nor windy suspiration of forced breath, no, nor the fruitful river in the eye, nor the dejected 'havior of the visage, together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief, that can denote me truly. These indeed “seem,” for they are actions that a man might play.
..She married! Oh such wicked speed! To hop so nimbly into an incestuous bed!’ (1.2.57) Hamlet shows his disgust towards Gertrude for her actions. “You cannot call it love…..when the compulsive ardour gives the charge…3.2.75-95. In addition, Claudius is again disloyal to Hamlet when he colludes with Laertes to kill him.
Hamlet was already greatly affected by his father's death and was in deep mourning. After the ghost came into contact with Hamlet, he embodied anger and found a deep addiction to revenge. The ghost of Hamlet's father revealed something to the young Hamlet about how the ghost, Hamlet's father, had died. From there, it set the course for the rest of the play. The ghost informed Hamlet that he had been killed by Sir King Claudius and that Claudius was, in fact, Hamlet's uncle.
This is apparent through the appearance of his father. The apparition claims that “I am thy [Hamlet’s] father’s spirit” (I.v.14). This shows that the king’s physical body is dead but not his soul. But the king admits that he had done some bad things in his life therefore he is “doomed for a certain term to walk the night” (I.v.15). As hamlet figures it out that the husband of his mother is a murderer—Uncle Claudius—he realizes that his mother is at fault.
However, the only thing that Hamlet actually does is make life more difficult for those around him. He pretends to be insane, verbally abuses his girlfriend, stabs said girlfriend’s father, and terrorizes his mother. When he’s not doing that, he’s busy soliloquizing. Not to mention the fact that Hamlet is responsible—whether directly or indirectly—for why, by the play’s end, everyone is dead. Polonius, Laertes, Claudius, Gertrude, Ophelia, and yes, even Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.
Soon after, the young prince is visited by a ghost that resembled the appearance of his dead past father. To increase confusion on Hamlet’s situation even more, the ghost gives details about the truth of King Hamlet’s death; the King was murdered by Claudius while asleep. Because of this and other similar factors, like betrayal, Hamlet began to fall down into a sense of insanity. Throughout William Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark, indication of Prince Hamlet’s true madness is seen in his feelings of abandonment and betrayal from the relationships he has with his family and friends, the unstable emotions and thoughts of avenging his father’s “unnatural” murder, and the unbelievable appearance and meeting of the presumably ghost of former king of Denmark Hamlet’s father, King Hamlet. The character of Hamlet has
Shakespeare uses Hamlet`s hatred towards his mother to establish the betrayal Hamlet is feeling, and to acknowledge the fractured state of Hamlet`s family due to Gertrude`s actions and decisions. Not only did Gertrude betray her own son by marrying Claudius but she also betrayed her former husband, Elder Hamlet. Alone, Hamlet talks to the ghost of Elder Hamlet who expresses his disappointment in Gertrude, calling her an “adulterate beast” (1.5.42), meaning she has
