How is Gertrude's life manipulated in Hamlet?
1 Answer | add yours
In my opinion, some scholars have been too hard on Gertrude. There is no textual evidence, after all, that she truly was in on the plot to kill her former husband, King Hamlet. She seems genuinely shocked in Act 3.4 when Hamlet rails:
Almost as bad, good mother,As kill a king and marry with his brother.
As kill a king?
