The soliloquies spoken by Hamlet were directed to the audience rather than seeming like conversations with himself In the first soliloquy Hamlet talks about how aggravated at life he is and that if it werent for Gods laws he would commit suicide He is not really morning his fathers death in this soliloquy but more his disgust for his mother for marring his uncle especially a few months after his fathers death He then goes on to explain he must remain silent He is explaining to the audience that nothing can undo the situation to make it any better But that isnt good enough for Hamlet Something has to be done This soliloquy sparks an interest in the reader and provides a glimpse into Hamlets thoughts while informing the audience of the history of his familys tribulations In the second soliloquy Hamlet calls on the audience the distracted globe to hear his vow to get revenge on his uncle and to erase all from his mind except that of what the ghost had informed him of The ghost Hamlets father had explained to him that Claudius had killed him and his soul couldnt rest until revenge was brought onto his brother The audience hears Hamlets promise to make Claudius pay for his murderous ways Already the audience is excited by hearing Hamlets promise because it is giving them something to look forward to In the third soliloquy Hamlet admits to the audience he is a coward What an ass am I He then goes on to tell the audience of his new idea to help draw the truth out of Claudius He believes that the theater can make a person experience real emotion He finds this remarkable that something fictional can create a reality But Hamlet admits that he is not sure if the ghost said to be his father is really who he says to be and not the creation of Satan
