Hamlet Through Hamlets own hesitation paranoia and desire to gain revenge he inadvertently sets himself up for the tragic events that conclude the Shakespearean play Hamlet On account of his active participation and at the same time ignorance his efforts to serve justice are a failure Three of his faults are how he deals with his fathers death his mothers marriage and Ophelias love At the beginning of the play Hamlet is already extremely depressed and has been mourning his fathers death in his inky cloak for an excessive period of time He obviously had very strong love for his father - He was a man take him for all in all I shall not look upon his like again - and is having a difficult time dealing with his death Then in his misery he also has to deal with his mothers marriage of most wicked speed to incestuous sheets He expresses his frustration and confusion during his soliloquy in Act 1 Scene 2 after the new Kings announcement to his people Horatio then arrives to tell Hamlet of the apparition that was seen the night before A figure resembling the Old Hamlet - these hands are not more like - appeared outside the castle This presents concern for Hamlet because he feels that there has been some foul play to cause the appearance of this spirit In Kenneth Branaghs movie production Hamlet begins to look through a book about demons This suggests that Hamlet presumes something unpleasant has taken place Hamlet insists that he sees this ghost and accompanies Horatio and Marcellus on their watch The ghost presents itself again and Hamlet follows it where it proceeds to make known to Hamlet the evil act of murder that has been committed by Claudius Hamlet then swears to avenge his fathers death and forget everything else - from the table of my memory Ill wipe away all trivial fond records Hamlet
