Tragedy treats human beings in terms of their godlike potential, of their transcendental ideals, of the part of themselves that is in rebellion against the implacable universe and the frailty of their own flesh and will. This quote is very applicable to Hamlet in respect to his reverence towards his father and his belief in the divine as the guiding principle, Hamlets own character flaw, Hamlet’s feelings of hopelessness over his own flaw, and his view towards the pointlessness of even existing
