The tragedy in Hamlet lies in the fact that Hamlet the hero was human and was violently wronged and was justified in seeking revenge Hamlet the play is a tragedy and Hamlet the character is the tragic hero of the play Hamlet like all tragic heroes brings out feelings of pity and fear from the reader The reader pities Hamley because his father died by murder and because Hamley becomes mad as he learns that his uncle was the murderer The audience fears him because he transforms a points into a monster crazed and impassioned waiting for the perfect moment to take revenge Obviously Hamlet is neither completely good or evil He is instead only human Hamlet is a tragic human mad at points and completely sane at others At the beginning of the play Hamlet is completely sane He is still mourning his fathers death and he is very angry at his funcle and his mother for marrying so soon but he is not crazy When Hamlet first learns from the ghost that his father was murdered by his uncle he becomes furious and is anxious for revenge but at this point he is still sane His first sign of insanity occurs when he harasses Ophelia Later because after killing Polonius he does not think twice about what he has done and has no remorse And when Claudius questions Hamlet about the location of the dead body he does not refust to tell but rather jokes and riddles saying Polonius is At supperno where he eats but where he is eaten and he is In Heaven By the end of the play some people might believe that Hamley has surely proven his madness and evil nature since he has directly and indirectly killed Polonius Rosencrantz Guildenstern Ophelia and Claudius However even though he has shown apparent transformation from saneness to insanity by the time he finally takes revenge and kills Claudius
