Question and answer
How is the major external conflict of Hamlet solved? Hamlet sees the ghost. Hamlet stabs Polonius. Hamlet kills Claudius.
I guess his external conflict is whether to kill Claudius. [ His internal conflict is whether to become a warlike prince or king like his father and his uncle and Prince Fortinbras or whether to be true to himself, the peace-loving student from Wittenberg. When Hamlet met Horatio, he said, "Horatio, or I do forget myself." Horatio, the Wittenberg scholar, represented the true Hamlet, before
he was "from himself taken away." But then when Hamlet met the Ghost, he promised to "wipe away" himself from the "book of his brain" and write his father all alone there. Thus Hamlet did "forget himself." Thereafter, Hamlet's soliloquy's were debates between the two halves of his divided soul: Hamlet the scholar vs Hamlet the soldier; feudal values vs humanist values; rational thought vs rash action. Often the conflict was expressed in his elders' terms of honor: "the pale cast of thought" vs "the native hue of resolution," "some craven scuple of thinking too precisely" vs "honor." But the conflict was also framed from the scholar's point of view: "god-like reason" vs bloody thoughts. I think the main theme of the play is an abridgement of two lines: "TO BE OR NOT TO BE"..."so like the king THAT was and IS THE QUESTION of these wars." By the way, the "smiling villain" is his uncle, not his mother ]
