He only obtained the throne after killing his brother and marrying his brother’s widow. King Claudius appears to the audience as a civil, diplomatic ruler and it is only until the ghost first appears to Hamlet that is revealed he killed his brother with poison. The betrayal of his mother marrying King Claudius within a month after his King Hamlet’s death leaves Prince Hamlet feeling angry, bitter and revengeful towards his mother. Also the fact that she married her brother-in-law was considered to be incestuous and sinful in that era. When Prince Hamlet hires travelling actors to perform an act to the King Claudius and Queen Gertrude, they notice the plot to be similar to the murder of King Hamlet.
It appears that Romeo went down to mourn Juliet inside the Capulet tomb when he encountered Country Paris who was supposed to have wed Juliet last week. The two started a duel with Paris’ servant present at the beginning but ran for help. Before he could come back the duel had ended with the death of Paris. “I knew the fight would end with a death again so I ran for help…but I was too late” said Paris’ dejected servant. It is thought that Romeo then saw Juliet lying inert on the tomb from the effects of a sleeping death potion, he thought her to be dead and in a blind fit
This remark also implies that that he is still mourning the loss of his father and is not yet ready to move on. Hamlet also mentioned something rather peculiar: He claims to have seen his father, or rather a ghost of his father, “armed at point exactly.” (1.2.212) Hamlet spoke of the encounter with “oppressed and fear-surprised eyes” (1.2.215), suggesting that he does not fully believe it, yet he still wants to. The ghost allegedly told Hamlet that he must be prepared for revenge, for the new king, Claudius, poisoned his father in order to regain the throne. Both the resentment Hamlet holds towards his mother and uncle and his alleged encounter with the ghost of his father suggest that Hamlet has many family problems to work towards. Hamlet’s id speaks for him when he shows his
The one relationship that was affected severely by the fact that he is passion’s slave is the relationship between him and his mother, Gertrude. What triggers the immediate conflict between the two of them is the fact that almost immediately after the death of Hamlet Sr., she chose to marry his brother Claudius “But two months dead”; whom also turns out to be the killer of Hamlet Sr. It is a clear indication to the audience that Hamlet is not in agreement of this marriage; this in turn leads to conflict between them continuously through the play. “Now could I drink hot blood…Soft! Now to my mother.” “I will speak daggers to her but use none.” Hamlet uses daggers as a reference to the fact that he will speak his anger rather than physically hurting her.
This doesn’t make sense, since it’s only been 16 years since his Father’s accident. This makes Tanner wonder what other lies his mother has been telling him. He starts to think maybe his mother and Floyd killed his Dad to be together. So Tanner starts asking and looking into his Father’s accident. He goes to see his Father’s old boss and best friend Mr. Sorenson to see if he could help Tanner found out if his mother and stepfather murdered his father.
The knife was destined to be how she killed herself. In the final act of the play, Romeo had been banished to Mantua from killing Tybalt. He runs into his old servant Balthasar, who told him that Juliet was dead. Romeo, not knowing that she had actually taken a sleeping potion, can’t believe she died, and states “Is it e’en so?-then I defy you, stars!” (V. i. 24).
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.
I did love you once. (III.i.111-115) Hamlet promised to marry Ophelia after he took her innocence. He then began to mistreat her and finally … left her. When Hamlet realizes Ophelia’s father caught him in a trap he becomes furious. In fact he becomes so angry that he tells Ophelia that he never loved her and that instead of marrying she should go to a nunnery rather then pass on her genes to children.
As we progress through his soliloquys in the play we see changes in Hamlet’s emotions and feelings towards what he eventually wants to do. By the third soliloquy we have found out about Hamlet’s fathers ghost and that Claudius was the one who killed him. Hamlet is angered by this and assures that he will only think of getting revenge on Claudius. Later he realizes that he should stop procrastinating and hurry up and avenge his father, but he doesn’t have the courage to do it. Hamlet also expresses the possibilities that the ghost could have been the devil.
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.
