Hamlet is frustrated by his mother’s marriage to his uncle Claudius who he suspects murdered his father. Hamlet’s constant fixation with his mother’s sexual desires and conduct reveals a possible fascination for her physically. Her words and opprobrium may suggest an unfulfilled lust for her. Hamlet’s comments do read more live unrequited lamentation than moral sanctions. He seems to be more upset about his mother sleeping with Claudius than Claudius murdering his father. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Select as best answer Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
