Personal Response Annie Cruz
My reaction to Act 1 in Hamlet is disquist. The fact that a person could possibly be so power greedy that they would take their own siblings life is horrific. Althought Hamlet's reaction to being enlightened of the cause of his father's death wasn't what I expected, I do beleive that he will overall get his vengence on King Claudius. I find that Hamlet is a very depressed character. Hes very emotional and sensitive for the usual masculine role. Also, I find it interesting that Shakespear involves and refers to ghosts in this story. When Hamlet's father's spirit communicates with him i found it to be a very important part of the story because this sets Hamlet's actions for the rest of the play.
