when inaction does not allow, Hamlet is a man who s path is ruled by inner turmoil and ill-fated destiny. He is finally left in a situation in which he cannot not act. The further he strays from his promise of revenge and restoration of the state of Denmark, the more tainted his path becomes. He is caught in a cycle of rash behavior and justification of that behavior. To be ruled by thought is to be ruled by inaction and thus be damned to the tides of fate and the ill dealings of others. Inaction cost Hamlet his mother, his love and finally himself. Works Cited Detmold, George. “Hamlet s All but Blunted Purpose.” Rev. of Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
