Piz PAGE 6Juan Pablo PizMelissa DuganEnglish 1025/2/2017Revenge, Unsweetened RevengeHamlet, Prince of Denmark, by William Shakespeare, is one of the most important and influential playsin the world, being performed in 1600. Shakespeare was baptized in April 26th, 1564 in Stratford, England and grew up to be considered one of the best English poet, dramatist and writer in the history of literature. He died inApril 23rd, 1616 in Stratford, leaving a literary legacy to England and the world. By looking at how long Hamlet takes to get revenge from his uncle Claudius, King of Denmark, it is evident that many factors were influencing his decision and, as a consequence, making him take longer to execute his plan. This is important because Hamlet had big desires of killing his uncle Claudius, but an internal fight with himself was holding him back. Throughout the play, one is going to notice that Hamlet had chances to kill Claudius, but the reasons that made him take longer were that he finds himself confused after meeting with the spirit of his dad, former king of Denmark, he did not wanted Claudius to go to heaven as a consequence of his revenge and finally because his mixed feelings towards his mother and her death were the event that caused Hamlet to take immediate action. The meeting of Hamlet with the spirit of his murdered father created a big impact on him since it opened his eyes to a reality that he was not familiarized with. His uncle Claudius, actual King of Denmark, showed to the funeral and showed empathy, support and kindness towards Hamlet. “You are the most immediateto our throne; and with no less nobility of love Than that which dearest father bears his son, Do I impart towardsyou.“ (I.II.109-102) When his father told him about Claudius poisoning him, Hamlet was confused because he couldn’t believe what his uncle had done after the support. As said before in A.S. Topchyan’s essayOnce Again on Hamlet’s Procrastination,“the psychological obstacle to committing murder for someone who is not a killer by nature, has not been given proper emphasis in the sea of literature on the play” (281). Hamlet was shocked because before he saw his dad’s spirit, the concept of Claudius that he had was of a good man who can be relied on. Chikako D. Kumamoto wrote about this topic on his essay
