I really enjoyed reading Hamlet It has a really interesting storyline that made me want to keep reading to find out what happens next Hamlet is one of my favorite plays written by Shakespeare Hamlet is one of the most famous plays to be recognized as a revenge tragedy because it fits the description so well Hamlet proves to be a revenge tragedy in several ways including a secret but planned murder ghost appearances and many accounts of violence throughout the play A revenge tragedy consists of many different characteristics in which Hamlet includesmost all of them in the play The term revenge tragedy is a complex term that contains about 6 different characteristics a secret hidden murder that was cunningly planned a visit from a ghost the murder victim to a family member which is usually the son many tragic events of violence towards the ending after the climax suicide in the family killer and avenger plot against each other and examples of real and faux madness One of the traits of revenge tragedy is suicide After Hamlet is cast out of Denmark for killing Polonius he returns not only to find Ophelia committed suicide but also that Laertes is set out on avenging Polonius murderer Ophelia fell into the river but didnt care enough about her life to attempt to save herself so she drowned This characteristic is really important because Claudius suspected that Hamlet was in love with Ophelia and Claudius was more than happy to arrange a duel between Laertes and Hamlet in hopes that Hamlet would die and stay out of business Opheliamost likely committed suicide out of madness and shock because of her fathers recent sudden death When Laertes first finds out about Ophelias death he questions the details and this is Gertrudes answer There is a willow grows askant the brookThat shows his hoar leaves in the grassy streamTherewith fantastic garlands did she makeOf crow-flowers nettles daises
