Hamlet’s transforms from good to evil in the play Hamlet by Shakespeare.
Hamlet experiences a lot of pain and becomes very anger because of his father’s
death, his mother’s bad remarriage, and the loss of his only love, Ophelia. The

through his soliloquies.
First, Hamlet reveals his wishes that he could just melt away and be gone;
because if he dies, he would be free from the world. Hamlet thinks about how
his father was a leader and went from a noble king to a king that does not desire
