I feel sympathy for Hamlet. He is an innocent character in the play. The burden of revenge is placed on Hamlet by his father's ghost. Now, Hamlet has to deal with the burden of revenge. He is troubled by his father's ghost. He must contemplate killing Claudius. It is not easy to plan someone's murder. Hamlet is young and should be enjoying his life. Now, he is encumbered with a heavy load of revenge. It is not fair. Young Hamlet is placed in a difficult position. He has suffered by losing his father and his mother to Claudius. Hamlet should not have to make such a serious decision as to murder Claudius. Yet if he doesn't, he will find difficulty living with the fact that Claudius had murdered his father, stolen his mother, and gotten by with it. Yes, I have sympathy for Hamlet.
