Hamlets Flaws What is Hamlets flawNor to any one is he known to have defect No one ever ventures to speak of him slightingly or critically Why does not the King Laertes or Fortinbras despise him for a scholar and a dreamer at least instead of taking him as they all do for the worthy son of his warrior sire Why does not the Queen once sigh or Horatio sadly shake his head He is a courtier soldier scholar the expectancy and rose of the fair state cries Ophelia and there is no suggestion that she is saying it as one who does not know It is the accepted opinion The king fears him and he shrinks form bringing him to account for Polonius death he says because of the great love the general gender bear him This sinful Queen quails under his rebuke and yet loves him too well to betray his confidence And as often in Shakespeares tragedies at the end of the play judgment to the same effect is pronounced on his character by a disinterested party Was Hamlet out of his mind or was he pretending to be crazy Did anyone realize what Hamlets dilemma such as Ophelia the King and the Queen What was his delay Could it be that Hamlet was not so much afraid of killing the king but hurting his mother mentally emotionally after the death of her King and her abrupt marriage to Claudius Was Hamlet afraid that maybe the ghost of his father wasnt really his fathers ghost at all in that it was a trick of the devil Hamlets over analysis is what turns out to be the reason for so many deaths including his own His procrastination kills not only himself but also his mother his girlfriend and others but it also leaves the reader full of doubt Of course the average reader is aware that Hamlet will kill the new king
