By creating the character Claudius to be manipulative Shakespeare is developing the idea, that fear can cause a hasty foresight that causes negative consequences. But by Shakespeare creating the characters Horatio and Marcellus, Shakespeare is trying to show us that there are also characters that think before making a decision, which is a good thing with positive outlooks, versus negative consequences and not thinking before taking action.

But, after Claudius killed his brother King Hamlet, Prince Hamlet ran into a ghost in which spoke, “I am thy father’s spirit;” (I, v, 9), telling him everything he needed to know how he died, where he died, and the estimated time in which Claudius murdered him.

A good majority of us fight with our families, be it mother, father, brother, sister, uncle whatever it may be, it`s natural, it`s just a part of life. We all say things we don`t mean at the worst times, we all do things we regret, we just have to be able to pull it all back together and say two of the world`s most important words, ``I`m Sorry.``

With Laertes being a weak minded person it makes it all the better for the character of Claudius, making it easier to...
