This is an analysis of the play "Hamlet" by William Shakespeare. Special attention is paid to the scene where the real murderer of the king is divulged. The author explains how this is a pivotal scene as it solves the mystery that has been building up until that point.

From the Paper:

Act III, Scene II is important for a number of reasons. Essentially, it is the start of the second half of the play. It could be argued that the first half of the play is when Hamlet sets up his strategy to avenge his father's death. Naturally, the second half would then be Hamlet taking the vengeance he so baldy wants. Unfortunately for nearly all parties involved, it does not happen how he planned.
In Act III Scene II, Claudius' guilt as well as his moral values had been exposed for all to see. Hamlet's underhanded slyness was also revealed by his non-confrontational means of proving the king's role in the murder of his father.
Lastly, the reader also discovers the queen's apparent innocence.
