The savvy and eloquent Claudius is able to murder King Hamlet and obtain his kingship. He also manages to marry her widow and make the crown prince his step child. He and Polonius are able to plot the decline of prince Hamlet and drive a wedge between him and Ophelia. Even Hamlet, in pursuit of revenge, shows contempt for the true love of Ophelia and nurture of Gertrude. There is moral corruption in characters like Reosencrantz and Gildenstern who only pretends to be Hamlet’s to curry favour with Claudius. Only characters that are absolved of corruption are Ophelia and Horatio. 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.
