Hamlet, upon killing Polonius, compares his “bloody” act to that of “kill[ing] a king, and marry[ing] with his brother,” blatantly expressing his mortification and disapproval with Gertrude’s marriage to Claudius(3.4.29).

Hamlet tells us that truth is not simple; therefore, to get to “truth”, questions become more important than answers. What are the important questions from this play? • “Who’s there?” • Why does Hamlet delay avenging the murder of his father by Claudius, his father’s brother? • How much guilt does Hamlet’s mother, Gertrude, who has since married Claudius, bear in this crime? • How trustworthy is the ghost of Hamlet’s father, who has returned from the grave to demand that Hamlet avenge his murder? • Is vengeance morally justifiable in this play, or is it to be condemned? • What exactly is the ghost, and where has it come from? • Why is the ghost, visible to everyone in the first act, visible only to Hamlet in Act 3? • Is Hamlet’s madness feigned or true, a strategy masquerading as a reality or a reality masquerading as a strategy? • Does Hamlet, who once loved Ophelia, continue to love her in spite of his apparent cruelty? • Does Ophelia, crushed by that cruelty and driven mad by Hamlet’s murder of her father, Polonius, actually intend to drown herself, or does she die accidentally? • What enables Hamlet to pass from thoughts of suicide to faith in God’s providence, from “To be, or not to be to “Let be”? • What was Hamlet trying to say before death stopped his speech at the close?
