Joshua Pierce Mrs. McAbee English 102 9 April 2018 “Hamlet” The book “Hamlet”, is named after the main character of the story. The main character Hamlet was born under the king and queen of Denmark. His father known as late King Hamlet, and his mother known as Queen Gertrude, and is the nephew of the present king, Claudius. During the time of the story Hamlet is depressed and an over complex character. Throughout the book Prince Hamlet of Denmark faces a lot of controversy and has to make some tough decisions. During the beginning of the book Hamlet, is in his adult years just trying to live up to his father’s dreams of him taking over his kingship once he dies. While during the time of his kingship Hamlet’s father, the late King Hamlet dies. Then, shortly after his father dies, his mother soon starts dating his uncle the present king, Claudius. After his father’s death Hamlet soon begins to see a ghost. Shortly after he realizes that the ghost is his father. The ghost of his father tells Hamlet that his bother King Claudius is the one that killed him. After finding this out Hamlet start to plot revenge. Not only does Hamlet know now that King Claudius killed his father, but he soon starts to think that his mother might have had something to do with it. Hamlet questions his mother hoping that she had nothing to do with his father’s death. Throughout the story we see that Hamlet isn’t as simple and easy to predict as we think. Hamlet is considered a hero who, because of his sensitive, moral nature, suffers keenly from his
task, (Jorgensen 47). While reading the book it may be hard to identify why Hamlet is considered a hero. Hamlet will soon start to show his true colors. Most people see Hamlet as a calm and collative character. Many people can see Hamlet as having three characteristics. The readers can see the power of his feeling that surpasses all other characters in the play, his intelligence is subtle and all-embracing, and the will power that he presents, (Hamlet 220). As later on in the book I would define Hamlet as an aggressive and unsatisfied character.
