Describe existentialism in hamlet

1 Answer

  1. Hamlet is a man that is confused in his own skin. He wants to exact revenge for his father’s murder but also mulls over the act of suicide. He loves Ophelia but belittles and disowns her love and asks her to join a nunnery.

    Then he ends up confessing his love on top her grave in font of her mournful brother Laertes. He cares for his mother but ends up hurting her the most.

    Even though he knows what he must do to restore justice, he delays it. In the end only when he is assured of his own death, he kills Claudius.
