Soliloquies of Hamlet One thing that humankind is unsure about is the idea of an afterlife This is a debatable topic because there is no solid proof of a life after death but more than half of the people in the world believe there is a place that exists Some believe that once a person transcends to the other side then they get reincarnated or a more common belief is of a heaven and a hell Heaven is a place where the good people would go and hell would be a place where the bad people go and the place in the middle is for repenting and it is called perjury In the play Hamlet written by William Shakespeare the protagonist Hamlet believes that if your do something bad then you will go to hell unless you confess your sins In this play Hamlet was faced with a tough decision the decision was whether he kills the king for the sins that the king committed or let him free Hamlets makes the decision that he must take revenge and follow his fathers wishes but when it comes down to actually going along with the plan then hamlet delays Hamlet delays his actions consistently because he does not feel right about killing Claudius but the main reason is that he is scared death and what would follow Through an examination of Hamlets soliloquies it is shown that Hamlet fears death and the afterlife Some of the most famous words in literature are found in act three scene one and these words are To be or not to be IIIi56 This soliloquy is very complex and it talks about death In this soliloquy Hamlet is a little more calmer and reasonable then his previous two Hamlet starts an internal philosophical debate on the advantages and the disadvantages of existence and whether it is moral to end ones life Hamlet uses the words To be or not
