While pretending his insanity, he mistakenly kills Polonius, councillor to the king, and also drives his lover, Ophelia, to suicide. In addition, Hamlet abandons all those he once called friends except for his one confidant, Horatio. Eventually, the insanity, once feigned by Hamlet, morphed into reality and became his enemy. The insanity Hamlet adopted led to ruthlessness and errors of judgement as Hamlet was blinded by the revenge of his father. As Christina Autiero asserts in a paper given at a conference held in Westchester - Putnam School, “Blinded by [his] passions,...Hamlet indirectly causes the death of Ophelia and his mother...revenge and Hamlet’s method of madness primarily cause his death and actions.
But this most foul, strange and unnatural” (Hamlet). King hamlet here is speaking of how Claudius had murdered him. Claudius had corrupted himself when he had committed this murder. Then despite what he just said King Hamlet asks his son to murder Claudius. In doing this he starts Prince Hamlet down a path of corruption that eventually leads to his own
He was infuriated by Claudius’ conniving treachery. He instantly reacted and murdered Claudius. Essentially, Hamlet does not carry out his vengeance because of the murder of his father like he set out to do. Instead, he kills Claudius immediately after seeing his mother die. In conclusion, Hamlet became the object of revenge himself by Claudius.
For example, when Claudius sets up the plan of poisioning Hamlet in the duel he ends up killing Ger... ... middle of paper ... ...is uncle, Claudius for taking the throne, his mother, his money and the crown. Therefore yes, Hamlet is obssesed with wanting to kill his Claudius. Claudius' Greed for power is to blame for all the tragedies in the play Hamlet. Claudius was jellous of his brother and did go through exstemes inorder to gain power through greed. Relying on others was another tragedy.
These characters end up dying, because Hamlet, the main character, wants revenge on his Uncle Claudius for killing his father; instead, he kills and causes many more deaths in the play. William Shakespeare is the author of this evil and intense tragedy, in which some believe he wrote about his son Hamlet, because he named the play Hamlet after his son passed away. Furthermore, Shakespeare makes the play dark and bitter like. In Hamlet, the theme
Hamlet, thinking that the voice of the man who had just cried out for help belonged to his uncle, stabs Polonius through the curtain and kills him. Gertrude laments the murder of Polonius calling it a bloody deed and Hamlet retorts, “A bloody deed! Almost as bad, good mother, As kill a king and marry with his brother” (Shakespeare 1862). In this scene, Hamlet reaps revenge on Gertrude by emotionally torturing her so she may feel the utmost guilt for betraying her son and husband. Then, Hamlet’s unremorseful character is revealed in his ability to murder Polonius when he thought it was Claudius he had heard behind the curtain.
In addition to this supernatural effect, the appearance of the ghost of King Hamlet is also very supernatural and presents an omen of disease and bad health. The idea that Claudius so easily murdered King Hamlet and plagued the entirety of the state of Denmark is disturbing and allows him to be seen by the audience as an evil villain. His greed and selfishness takes the lives of all those he loves including, his own. Ironically, Claudius is slain by his own method of murder; poison. Laertes, who agreed to join Claudius in the murder of Hamlet, admits to his own ironic death stating “I am justly kill’d with my own treachery” (5.2.318).
The conflict between Hamlet and Claudius is delayed by Hamlet but does eventually occur in the last scene. Hamlet's mother has just died, Hamlet has been sliced by Laertes' poison sword, and Hamlet has just struck Laertes with a fatal blow when Laertes says that this was all brought on by Claudius. Hamlet, now realizing that there is no more time for him to delay his revenge, stabs Claudus and kills him. Revenge was the motive for the conflict between Hamlet and Claudius. Shakespeare uses the revenge plot to create conflict between Laertes and Hamlet by having Laertes avenge his father's and sister's death which Hamlet is responsible for.
In result, the daughter of Polonius and former lover of Hamlet, goes mad and kills herself. The deaths of the innocent father and daughter cause another to seek revenge, Laertes. Laertes wants to avenge the deaths of his father and sister. The man who started it all is worried about being found out. In order to keep his actions covered up he teams up with Laertes to kill Hamlet.
Another person of the court that dies due to King Claudius deception, is the widow of the Late King Hamlet and the new wife to King Claudius, Gertrude. King Claudius is able to lure Gertrude into believing his intentions are good until she dies from drinking poison out of a cup that was intended for Hamlet- her son. Yet the most evident form of treachery comes from King Claudius, so formally plotting against Hamlet – his nephew – until his death. All in all, King Claudius is a bad person
