This paper explains that while the main protagonists in both Shakespeare's "Hamlet" and Vindici's "The Revenger's Tragedy" may share the seem motivation for revenge (i.e., death of a loved one), their different characters and circumstances make the way they carry out their revenge quite different.

From the Paper:

"Indeed, in my opinion, it is an important note to be made, as the originality of each main character is not determined as much by their underlying motivation, common in both cases, but by the road that takes them to their revenge action. In this sense, it seems useful to emphasize that, despite the obvious similarities between the two plays and the two main characters, driven by the fact that they both belong to the revenge genre, there are differences worth noting in each approach towards revenge for each play in part."
