    First, Hamlet argues to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern about the philosophy of what is “good” and “bad”. “Why, then, ’tis none to you; for there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so: to me it is a prison.” (II, ii, ).

The book even states that, "Hamlet must be the best known of all characters in the theater of the world". I am going to first give a story line or a short summary of the play.. 5. Suicide is an important theme in Hamlet. Discuss how the play treats the idea of suicide morally, religiously, and aesthetically, with particular attention to Hamlet’s two important statements about suicide: the “O, that this too too solid flesh would melt” soliloquy .

      Hamlet’s work showed the many personalities a person can express. Relieving tension in the play was necessary to give the audience or reader two ways to perceive the information at that moment. The use of comedy serving as a thematic purpose aesthetically pleases the audience and readers, to more involve themselves in the story or play. The conclusion of Hamlet in Act 5, Scene 2 is, similar to many of Shakespeare’s tragedies, a high body count. Laertes has poisoned Hamlet, Hamlet has poisoned Laertes, Gertrude has drunk poison.
