Hamlet's Delay

Summary: In "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare, Hamlet's delay to fulfill his responsibility to his family of avenging his father is not a cause of Hamlet's inability to kill Claudius, but rather a cause of Hamlet's lack of will to follow through with it. Hamlet labels as obstacles the events that occur between Hamlet's conversation with the Ghost and Claudius's death, so as to provide him with an excuse of his delay. Although Hamlet agrees with his father to take on this task, he does it forcibly and takes it as a burden or a curse. Moreover, his hate towards Claudius is derived more out of his mother's incestuous marriage with Claudius than out of Claudius poisoning Hamlet's father.
