The writer examines the characteristics of Hamlet and the forces that drove him to act as he did. The writer believes that Hamlet's melancholic behavior, his "tragic flaw," and his procrastination to fulfill the task of revenge are factors that cause him to fall victim to obstacles that he is unable to overcome.

From the Paper:

"In the play "Hamlet" the protagonist is concerned with situations involving not only social but also moral pressures as well. There are many reasons to believe that Hamlet's actions were not in vain. Although Hamlet kills Claudius, the plan for revenge is not properly fulfilled due to elements that cause Hamlet's downfall and his unfortunate demise. "
