Does Hamlet feel guilt for wanting to kill Claudius?
Near the end of the story, Hamlet is convinced that he must kill Claudius to revenge his father, although he may not know about Claudius' plans of killing him. He decides that a man must fight to the death for his honor, even if the reward is a straw. Do you think that Hamlet feels guilty at all for wanting to murder his uncle? I'm not saying that he should or shouldn't, but since he has such a sensitive conscience, do you think that he would?
