How did conflict over states’ rights contribute to sectional conflict?
to take action against Hamlet, so he organized a mob to attack on Denmark and threatens the King Claudius to overthrow but he calms him down because he did not want to give up his throne and together they team up to plot the murder of Hamlet. Laertes is driven by emotions and does not overanalyze any step he takes because he is easily influenced by the king, he reacts swiftly and recklessly. Both Laertes and Hamlet react differently to their father’s murder, Hamlet seeks evidence and then decides to kill King Claudius while Laertes is filled with rage and acts out of his anger rather than out of reason. The character of Fortinbras reacted similarly to Laertes. When Fortinbras lost his father in a battle against Denmark he was quick to act, his only desire was revenge. He is outraged and wants the throne he lost in the battle. Both Fortinbras and Laertes do not think twice before taking any action, they do not realize what consequences they might have to face in the future and the afterlife. The rage in Laertes leads to his own death by his sword, he says “I am justly killed with mine own treachery”(V.2.308) but he succeeds in his mission to kill Hamlet. Both are blinded by grief of their loss and revenge is their only way out of the chaos. Fortinbras is eager to act, so when he comes to Denmark, he finds everybody dead and he is quick to act on it. He takes the throne and says “with sorrow I embrace my fortune.”(V.2.389) which means he accepts the throne of Denmark and becomes the king. At the end, both of them are manipulated easily and seek revenge for their father’s death. They take immediate and clear action for their father’s death. The reactions of Hamlet, Laertes and Fortinbras to the loss of their father are symbols of revenge in the novel. Shakespeare shows a revenge driven by emotions, desires and ambition. Fortinbras and Laertes exhibit similar reactions and tempers from the main character Hamlet, who creates a thought-out plan and succeeds in his revenge to kill Claudius and free his father’s soul.>GET ANSWER
