He uses the first to attack himself for his horrible deed; certainly this is the first reaction of anyone who has wrongly killed his beloved. He delivers condemnation upon himself with eloquence and anguish. The latter speech he gives in his final role as a leader, directing the men who remain about how to deal with what has happened and showing them he has purged the evil.

His repeated insistence on postponing his highly confusing task emphasizes his uncertainty and kindles our own. Emotionally, Hamlet 's procrastination produces in him a growing rage that leads to his killing of Polonius in a fit of madness, an act that provokes Claudius to set in motion the incidents that lead to Hamlet 's exile and his escape from the Claudius’s execution plot.
