wether or not he's giong to kill himself. "To be or not to be, that is the question" Hamlet also has to debate whether or not he will go through with the revenge he is seeking for his father's death, which is to kill Claudius. This is what the whole play is about, revenge. In Act 3, Scene 2, Hamlet makes the players put on a play mimicking what had happened in Denmark (i.e. a murder puts poison in its victim's ear). Hamlet asks Horatio to watch Claudius' expression during the play, and Horatio confirms that Claudius seems uneasy and feels the guilt, as he brings the play to the end. Claudius' reaction confirms Hamlet's decision, and Hamlet knows that he is making the right decision by seeking revenge on Claudius for killing his father.
