He that hath made us with arge discourse and the incapability of making godlike reason, made us only contain one part wisdom and three parts coward. ” With this, he questions why he still lives to say these words. “Witness this army of such mass and charge, led by a delicate and tender prince, whose spirit, with divine ambition puff’d. ” Hamlet emphasizes how a righteous and pure spirit becomes crushed by ambition, the aspiration of becoming renowned and accepted. “My thoughts be bloody or be nothing worth. ” Hamlet has now revealed his own crisis. A righteous and pure spirit that has been crushed by his longing revenge towards
Claudius. In Hamlet by Williams Shakespeare, Hamlet’s character is perceived at the beginning of the play as one of virtue and integrity. He becomes a victim of evil and corruptness because he never forgives Claudius for murdering his father and also never forgives his own mother for marrying Claudius. Hamlet’s character transformation is very plain to see in the last line of his last soliloquy “my thoughts be bloody or be nothing worth. ” He allows himself to become someone that prospers off the thought of revenge, and this, ultimately, gets him killed.
