Act 4 Personal Reaction-Tori

In this act, my hate and dislike for Claudius grows even more in that he is wanting to punish Hamlet for killing someone by accident when, he himself killed his own brother for the glory of the crown, and take the Queen as his prize.  It angers me that he is putting all his efforts into Hamlet's discretions rather than focusing on the war at hand.  Claudius's loyalty to his country is becoming less and less evident as he grants Fortinbras permission to march through Denmark, when if he really loved and cared for his country, all his efforts and focus would be to keep the enemy out of Denmark.

  1. I agree with Tori. Claudius is being a hypocrite and he is being heartless. He isn't that good of a king at all, because al he is concerned about is himself and how good he can get life to be. -Rachel
