This fatal procrastination results in the unnecessary deaths of Laertes, Ophelia, Gertrude, and hamlet himself. This casts a most inauspicious light upon Hamlet, but solely if the received premise is true. The obverse side of the argument is that Hamlet, because he desires all those who are in league with Claudius to suffer the same ignominious fate that his father suffers. so he delays his revenge in order to intensify the misery of the early(a) characters. This also casts a most inauspicious light upon Hamlet, but only if the world-wide premise of the book is true, that Hamlet is the hero and is not enslaved to evil. That general premise is false. For even the Prince admits that he whitethorn be under the thralldom of the Devil, who is able to assume a pleasing shape and is rattling warm with such spirits of melancholy.          The first victim to fall under Hamlets preternatural wrath is Polonius. Hamlet, in rage that someone is staining on him, deliberately thrusts his sword for a mortal kill. When he discovers that it is Polonius, he shrugs and is not bothered in the least by it.

Instead of only killing the King, Hamlet directly and indirectly kills everyone. unless Horatio is not affected, for he remains true with Hamlet even to the very end when he tries to poison himself in order to accompany his prince to death. Horatio is the double of fidelity, even his stoic nature melts away when he witnesses the poignancy of the catastrophe of Hamlet.
