Act 5 Personal Reaction-Tori
I think it is really ironic how everyone dies at the end of the book, and the sequence in which they die. I am proud of Hamlet finally getting his revenge on King Claudius and thus avenging his father's murder. It saddens me to think of the death of Ophelia, and what drove her to this depressing state. I am also proud of Hamlet for finally expressing his emotions about his love for Ophelia to other people in his anguish at the news of her death. When Hamlet is on his death bed, he names Fortinbras the heir to the throne of Denmark, and it surprises me that he would do that since Fortinbras is the sworn enemy of Denmark.
