What is the essence of Hamlet’s predicaments or tragedy? Goethe suggested it is the cruel and corrupt environment that breaks the delicate, sensitive, “good” Hamlet. Other critics see Hamlet as the source of trouble in the play either because he is unsettled by the ghost and his mom’s betrayal, or because he himself becomes poisoned or compromised by evil. What do you think is at stake here, and what is the cause of the issue that fascinates everyone: Hamlet’s poor handling of the promise to avenge his father? Support your explanation with the evidence from the text.
