Hamlet and his dead father share a strong bond so much so that even through the veil of death they continue to communicate. The ghost of dead king visits the prince and tells him about his uncle’s betrayal for power. He accuses Gertrude of immoral lusts but advises the prince of not harm her. Their relationship becomes the bedrock of all the action that happens in the rest of the play.
Another father and son relationship is seen in Laertes and Polonius. Even though they are not as close but Laertes does rush to avenge his father’s murder as soon he learns about it. Eventually he dies trying to avenge the same.
