Description:

The paper examines the causes and results of the agonizing indecisiveness of Hamlet in Shakespeare's "Hamlet". The paper shows how Hamlet's failure to act sooner and more decisively in avenging his father's death leads to an unfortunate series of ill-timed, poorly executed events that ultimately result in many deaths, most importantly that of Hamlet himself.
