Personality of Hamlet


Among Shakespeares many great works, Hamlet probably is the greatest.

The whole play is about power and authority. The king of Denmark was

murdered by his brother Claudius, who married his wife Gertrude, and

became a king of Denmark. Hamlet was the son of murdered king, who was

getting his education away from the kingdom of Denmark. He comes back

and finds his mother married to his uncle. This makes Hamlet very

frustrated. Then Hamlet sees his fathers ghost and he tells him that

his uncle, the present king has murdered him. He was suspecting that it

even before his fathers ghost had told him. So he starts thinking of

ways of killing the king and his mother. The queen, wasnt aware that

the king was murdered by his brother. So Hamlet after couple of attempts

succeeds in killing his uncle. His mother dies by drinking poisoned

wine, which was prepared for Hamlet. Hamlet gets wounded while sword

fighting with son of Polonius, whom he have murdered earlier, because he

though that he helped his uncle to murder his father. During this fight

poisoned Hamlet gets wounded. And son of Polonius, tells him that this

sword was poisoned by king to kill him. So he stabs the king and kills

him. At the end of course he dies himself.


There are so many murders in this play that could be avoided.

Especially death of Ophelia, the daughter of Polonius, who died because

of Hamlets mistreatment. She drowned herself. Hamlet couldve saved her

if he reacted to her love on time. Also the death of the Queen,

Polonius, and his son was unnecessary. These characters werent related

to his fathers death.


Hamlet suspected his uncle in his father murder even before the

appearance of his


fathers ghost. After hearing it from his fathers ghost his thought was

to revenge. He planned it several times, and several times could do it.

Hamlet was a clever man. He pretended that he was mad. And his murder of

Polonius wasnt punished, because everyone thought he was mad.


I think the main thought that touched Hamlet so much in his fathers

death was his mother marriage to his uncle. He hated his mother for

marrying his uncle. He saw it as adultery, both sexual and moral. She

not only married after her husband death, but she also married his

brother. So Hamlet thought that his mother has helped his uncle to

murder his father, and therefore Hamlet was from the beginning planning

on murdering both of them.


Shakespeares tragedy Hamlet I think is a mystery. After reading the

selection, I am just not sure what the author was trying to convey to

his audience. Is it indecisive, melancholic, brutal character of Hamlet?

Or is it the deeds people would do to gain power? Or is it the

unrequited love of Ohpelia? Or is it friendship of Horatio or etc? There

are so many I think unnecessary or irrelevant parts to this play, that

doesnt make sense to ordinary people. But we must understand that this

is a masterpiece of great writer, which could be called Mona Lisa of
