Act 3, Scene 3
There is always a Right time and a wrong time to do something. Even though the wrong time may come quicker than the right time the wrong time can come with so many problems. The right time is better to wait for and come with less problems. Hamlet was faced with a big problem after seeing his uncle basically confess to murder in the play that Hamlet planned out. Hamlet was in the situation to kill his uncle while he was confessing his sins or to wait it out until another opportunity came up. Hamlet has so much anger and determination for revenge to kill his uncle after the play, but yet he can still control it. While Hamlet was planning for another time to kill his uncle, little do he know his uncle is planning on having him killed as well. First the king tries to get him shipped to England saying it was so he does not harm anyone else, but when in reality it is just because he know Hamlet wants him dead.
This soliloquy is just one of William Shakespeare's many that he have came about with. It is just as important as any one of them though.

Other characters being killed on accident between the feud of Hamlet and his uncle. If Hamlet would have just killed him while he was praying no other people would have died. The decisions that was made and could have been made during this situation was all important to the outcome. The respect given back in them days of time was the only thing that saved Claudius. In Hamlet’s mind it would not have been revenge if he killed him and Claudius got to confess his sins. “No. Up,sword, and know thou a more horrid hent. Act 3 scene 3 lines 89-90.” Hamlet wanted Claudius to be doing something very wrong so that he would be sure off to hell. “Then trip him, that his heels may kick at heaven, and that his soul may be as damned and black as hell, whereto it goes. Act 3 scene 3 94-96.”
Everything after this part in the play speeds up. Hamlet and the King both want each other dead. While they are planning for different...
