This paper provides an analysis of Shakespeare's tragic drama "Hamlet." The focus of the analysis is how the older generation's evil and weaknesses lead to the destruction of the younger generation, including the actions of Claudius, Polonius, and Gertrude and their impact on Laertes, Ophelia and Prince Hamlet.

From the Paper:

"The older generation in William Shakespeare's tragic drama 'Hamlet' purposefully and unwittingly is responsible for the destruction of the younger generation. Polonius will inadvertently bring about the deaths of his children Laertes and Ophelia and even his own death when he is killed accidentally by Hamlet. The ghost of Hamlet's father inadvertently causes Hamlet's death by demanding vengeance from his son. In this way the actions of Polonius and the Ghost of Hamlet's father perpetuate evil that brings about the destruction of their children."
