Is hamlet seen as introspective and unstable?
hes not really unstable but he reflects and ponders alot showing he is introspective
Claudius is concerned that Hamlet knows the truth about how he killed King Hamlet and has been watching Hamlet since he killed the king. When Hamlet kills Polonius he sees how unstable Hamlet is and that he can not take the chance and let Hamlet stay, which would risk his own safety. Claudius sends Hamlet to England so that on the way he can have him killed and he would no longer have to worry…
Although love fails often in Hamlet, there is much love in the play. Ophelia loves Hamlet, Gertrude loves Hamlet, and despite his anger, Hamlet loves Gertrude. Hamlet also loves his father dearly, and this love prompts, in part, his desire for revenge. There is also love between friends, as seen in the relationship between Hamlet and Horatio.
Teenagers are all but required to be introspective, as part of growing up is figuring out who you are. No one at the company guessed that their quiet, introspective bookkeeper was secretly embezzling a sizable chunk of their net profits, and that was part of the fun for him. He has never been an introspective person, so I don't know how he's going to write a memoir without substantial help from a ghostwriter.
This is one of the most debated questions about Hamlet and one to which no definitive answer can be given. There are three possible answers: 1. Hamlet was really mad. 2. Hamlet was just putting it on. Evidence for this are his lines to his friends that he is going to "put an antic disposition on". He also says clearly to his mother that "it is not madness that I speak". He behaves very strangely…
The gravedigger (actually the Sexton Clown) thinks Hamlet was sent to England because he was mad. Here is the relevant dialogue. ~=~ Hamlet: Aye, marry, why was he sent into England? Sexton Clown: Why? Because he was mad! He shall recover his wits there, or if he do not, 'tis no great matter there. Hamlet: Why? Sexton Clown: 'Twill not be seen in him there; there, the men are as mad as he. ~=~
In Act 3 scene 3 when Hamlet is about to kill Claudius he sees that Claudius is praying. Hamlet does not want to just aveng his father by killing Claudius but he also wants to make sure Claudius suffers in the afterlife so, Hamlet decides to kill Claudius when he has commited a sin (like when he is drunk). This could also be seen as Hamlets procastinating character.
