The young prince is visited by the spirit of his dead father and the ghost can be interpreted differently according to different religious beliefs. From a protestant view just like Hamlet, it could be devil trying to incite Hamlet into committing the sin of murder. Similarly, the scene where Claudius is praying, Hamlet refrains from killing him. He fears that if Claudius is killed while praying his soul may find solace in heaven. Another striking example his the ‘To be or not to be’ soliloquy in which Hamlet argues the religious aspect of suicide and in the end resists taking his life. There is also references of incest and sexual misconduct which is rooted in biblical discourse. 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.
