goes made because of the death of Polonius. Her madness either causes her to drown herself, of someone drowned her to end her madness. Hamlet is angry at Gertrude because of her decision to marry Claudius so soon after her husband’s death. Hamlet says the he loves Ophelia more than Laertes could ever love her. He becomes angry and wrestles with Laertes after he insults Hamlet’s love for Ophelia. “And what judgement would step from this to this?”-hamlet “I loved Ophelia. 40 thousand brothers could not with all their quantity of love make up my sum.”-hamlet 4. Hamlet’s problems are with his family. The fact that his mother married his uncle two months after his father’s death angers him greatly. On top of that, his father’s ghost tells him to assassinate Claudius which is against his character. He spends the whole play dwelling on the ghosts orders to kill Claudius, which drives him insane. I think Hamlet is both mad and acting mad. The thought of killing Claudius to avenge his father and the marriage of his mother and uncle are taking a huge affect on his conscience. He is also acting mad to put on an act for Claudius and Polonius. They both believe he is insane for a different reason than why he is actually upset. This hides Hamlet’s intention of killing Claudius. His actions result in the death of Polonius, and indirectly kills Ophelia. This causes Laertes to try to kill him with a poisoned sword in a fencing match. This results in the death of both Laertes and Hamlet. Hamlet threatens Claudius with the poisoned sword before his death to force him to drink the poison that killed his mother. Hamlet resolves his problem, but ends up getting himself and many other people killed in the process. “Haste me to know’t, that I,with wings as swift as meditation or the thoughts of love may sweep to my revenge.”-hamlet “Ay, that incestuous adulterous beast,with witchcraft of his wits and traitorous gifts won to his shameful lust the will of my most seeming virtuous queen.”-ghost “Here is your husband, like a mildewed ear blasting his wholesome brother.”-hamlet

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
