Question and answer
In most of his soliloquy, Hamlet bitterly scolds himself for not taking steps toward revenge before now. In the last eight lines of the scene, he "thinks up" a reason for his delay. What is the reason?
Hamlet, Act II, Scene ii. In most of his soliloquy, Hamlet bitterly scolds himself for not taking steps toward revenge before now. In the last eight lines of the scene, he "thinks up" a reason for his delay: perhaps the ghost of his father, who has told him to seek revenge on Claudius for his death, is actually the Devil in disguise, out to trick him. To make absolutely sure, he will have the players perform a murder scene in front of Claudius, to see how he reacts.
