This passage from Hamlet, one of Shakespeare’s play, portrays the theme of the relationship of thought to action by demonstrating how Hamlet’s admiration for Fortinbras’s dedicated character compels him to make rash decisions in order to fulfill his word....
A scholar and a loyal friend to Hamlet, Horatio acts as one of Hamlet’s many character foils, meaning his characteristics contrast to Hamlet highlighting certain personality traits and allowing the reader to understand Hamlet.
However, not only is she the mother to the tragic hero Hamlet, she is also widow to his laid father, King Hamlet Senior, and also newly wed to Hamlets uncle, Claudius....
A tragic hero is usually a great hero, who gets the most respect from other people; on the other hand, a tragic hero can also lose everything he gained because of his mistakes.
("Taint not thy mind..." doesn't mean to think nice thoughts, which would be impossible, but simplynot to think of killing her.) The ghost has to leave becausemorning is approaching.Hamlet says he'll remember what he's heard "while memory holds aseat [i.e., still functions] in this distracted globe."

This quote is highly significant throughout the duration of Hamlet, as it portrays almost precisely, both the plotline of the story, as well as the conclusion....

He was a courageous, brave and good nobleman who was haunted by superstition, moral cowardice and an overwhelming ambition.(Boyce) Macbeth’s ambition to be king starts off as just a desire and progressively as the play goes on it becomes his tragic flaws.
Shakespeare’s use of the supernatural element helps give a definition to the play by being the catalyst of the tragedy that brings upon Hamlet’s untimely demise.
The tragic hero, brave and valiant Macbeth had all the required characteristics of the ideal Scottish soldier; valorous and gallant but he is bound to have a tragic flaw which he is powerless over and the cause of his inevitable death, his ‘vaulting ambition’ and greed....
(Q2 omits the reference to the child actors, butwithout it, the transition between the actor's losing popularityand the new king gaining popularity makes no sense, so itcannot be an interpolation.) Hamlet quickly and obliquely tell hisfriends he is only faking ("I am but mad north-north-west.
