This paper presents and discusses five possible reasons why Hamlet delays his revenge on Claudius even though Hamlet discovers early on that Claudius poisoned Hamlet's father.

From the Paper:

"William Shakespeare's Hamlet is one of the most fascinating and complex plays ever written. Young Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, is a man of intelligence and education, but the death of his father the king motivates him to seek revenge against his uncle Claudius. His uncle had succeeded Hamlet's father to the throne of Denmark and commits incest by marrying the King's widow Gertrude. Although Hamlet discovers early in the play that his uncle Claudius had poisoned his father, he delays his revenge until several acts later in the play."
