Inspired by the ghost of his dead father and former king, Hamlet is determined to kill Claudius and regain the crown. However, he is confused with his own justification of the sin of murder and delays the act even when there are opportunities to claim revenge. He pretends to be mad and often loses his ability to differentiate between sanity and madness, life and mortality. This internal struggle frustrates his desire for revenge. Laertes, Polonius son also tries to seek revenge from Hamlet for the murder of his gather and the suicide of his sister Ophelia. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
