The Revenge Tis not been Given
 
Hamlet is a play by William Shakespeare, This play is about a young man who's father is the king of Denmark who was murdered by his jealous brother. In this play there is countious murder, suicide, insanity, revenge, poision, and many many other evilous things. Focus on the main plot with me, Revenge. Revenge is defined as Inflict hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong done to oneself by the other person.
 Revenge in Hamlet is described in many places and translated into different things, such as Hamlet Jr. plotting to take revenge on his Uncle Claudius, who killed his brother (also hamlet's father), to marry his brother's wife to become king. The death of the king is done in a horrable way, causing the dead king's ghost to return to the castle to seek out revenge from Claudius. Eventually when Hamlet returns to Denmark, he mets his father's ghost who tells him to take revenge on Claudius to free him from the twilight (Quote 1 at bottom).
 Revenge is the plot on which the play is built, from the beginning when Hamlet finds out Gertrude (Hamlet's mother the queen) married Claudius not even a year after her husband dies, (Quote 2 at bottom) to when he seeks out proof that what King Hamlet's ghost told him about Claudius murdering him was true. Even with the non-main character Fortinbras (Prince of Norway) who seeks out to take back the land that King hamlet had fight Fortinbras's father for. And to the very end when Laertes fights Hamlet, taking his REVENGE Hamlet for killing his father Polonius.
 Like many things dealing with revenge, the inncent will get hurts. For examgle : (Quote 3 at bottom). When Hamlet's mother Queen Gertrude is killed by drinking from a poisined goblet of wine that Claudius had gotten specificly for Hamlet to drink during his fight with Laertes. Or when Ophelia commets suicide after going insane when her father is accidently killed by Hamlet (Quote 4 at bottom).
 In the world or in a play, revenge is everywhere, and with anyone. But revenge may seem the best course of action, but even in Hamlet, it only leads to the desctruction of everyone involved. Either in pain of some kind, or just wanting more power, it leads to the death of the characters of all.
