The main cause of these mad ideas, including seeing his father’s ghost, and mad actions all stem from the initial act of the marriage between Gertrude and Claudius.Hamlet was shattered and disgusted by his mother’s choice to marry his uncle so quickly that he states her tears from his father’s funeral were not even dried up yet before jumping into bed with his uncle, “Within a month, Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears Had left the flushing in her gallèd eyes, She married.
The final scene where Hamlets mother dies because of a poison meant for Hamlet, he is so overcome with grief as he watches her die that he finally finds the strength to kill the king and take revenge for the death of his father.
So Gertrude is an important key to show how Hamlets feelings developed throughout the play and how her love can bring him finally to do what he was supposed to do.
Abominably.“Hamlet” is a magnificent play, but no play is perfect.
To my mind, the biggest problem with the play is that we are not given an sufficient explanation for Hamlet’s miserable treatment of Ophelia.
She is unknowingly used in the plot against Hamlet by her father and brother who are supposed to protect her but instead they use her and therefore open a way for Hamlets hate and disappointment to direct at her.
As he thinks that she has betrayed him just like he thought his mother had done, although she did so unwillingly.
But as the play develops we see this relationship suffer some great dents. s role in Hamlet is to show us how Hamlets insanity develops, her actions are a big part of what drives Hamlet mad.
Because when she marries his uncle so soon after his fathers death Hamlet feels she is acting in such a betraying way that he is almost incapable of forgiving her.
He feels betrayed by his own mother, the sole person who he believes should never cause him pain.
He feel’s more hurt and anguish from this encounter rather than his father’s death it seems.
