The Good Evil Transformation

The Good Evil Transformation
By: Diego Rincon

Hamlet’s transforms from good to evil in the play Hamlet by Shakespeare.
Hamlet experiences a lot of pain and becomes very anger because of his father’s
death, his mother’s bad remarriage, and the loss of his only love, Ophelia. The
losses that Hamlet has to deal with are the anger and lack of forgiveness build in
himself. This allows Hamlet’s true thoughts and character to be revealed
through his soliloquies.

First, Hamlet reveals his wishes that he could just melt away and be gone;
because if he dies, he would be free from the world. Hamlet thinks about how
his father was a leader and went from a noble king to a king that does not desire
to help his people and serve his country. Hamlet loves the power and the fame
that is comes with being a king. Hamlet also shows his anger and disbelief with
women in general “ Frailty, thy name is women” like his mother and her bad
marriage with Clauduis. Hamlet says he is "sick at heart" over his father\'s death
and his mother\'s remarriage. Hamlet finds out that his uncle Clauduis has killed
the King, Hamlet’s father. The ghost of Hamlet’s father tells him to try and seek
revenge against Clauduis who was responsible for the king’s murder. So,
Hamlet needs to kill Clauduis to avenge his father’s death. Hamlet must kill his
uncle and get his innocent hands full of blood, so he can avenge his father’s

Hamlet now turns into a deceitful person. He now tries to come up with a
plan to kill Clauduis for his crime. Hamlet starts to question his ability to get
revenge for his father’s death. He wonders if he is too much of a coward. Hamlet
starts to think if it is better to live life with the pain of his father’s murder or try
to get revenge by killing his uncle Clauduis. Hamlet believes that death is the
same as going to sleep, forever. Hamlet thinks if he could go into a deep sleep
that would stop all the pain and suffering plus all his sorrow and he would be
happy to do it. Hamlet hesitates about taking his own life and falling asleep
forever because, he thinks that when he is asleep he will have dreams and the
dreams he will be very disturbing to him.

For the first time, Hamlet meets his mother in privacy. At least that is
what he thinks. He starts to discuss his feelings of his mother, but he vows that
he will speak daggers, but he will never actually use one. While Hamlet speaks
with his mother, someone else is listening to their every word. Polonius has
devised a plan to hide himself behind a curtain in the room and listen in on
Hamlet and his mother’s conversation to find out if Hamlet has gone mad.
Hamlet discovers that there is something behind the curtain. He thinks that it is
Clauduis hiding behind the curtains and that he will finally get revenge like the
ghost asked him to. Hamlet thinks his quest to avenge his father’s death is about
to end. But, he is going to find out that it is not true. His ambition gets the best
of him, and he does not think correctly. Hamlet kills the great Polonius. Before
this event, Hamlet is known to use his intelligence before he commits a task, but
this one action seemed to change his fate. He later blames his madness as being
responsible for the death of Polonius.

Hamlet is now starting to lose his mind. Hamlet now takes time to think
of all the events that have just occurred. Everything is not going his way, makes
his revenge for his father’s murder very difficult. “He that hath made us with
large discourse and the incapability of making godlike reason, made us only
contain one part wisdom and three parts coward.” With this, he questions why
he still lives to say these words. “Witness this army of such mass and charge, led
by a delicate and tender prince, whose spirit, with divine ambition puff’d.”
Hamlet emphasizes how a righteous and pure spirit becomes crushed by
ambition, the aspiration of becoming renowned and accepted. “My thoughts be
bloody or be nothing worth.” Hamlet has now revealed his own crisis. A
righteous and pure spirit that has been crushed by his longing revenge towards
