Hamlet feels that he must seek revenge on his father’s behalf. However, hestruggles with the authenticity of the “ghost” and is indecisive about his courseof action.
Throughout the rising action, Hamlet tries to figure out if Claudius truly killed his father. When he hears a group of actors are coming, he requests that they act out a play that depicts a king being poisoned in the ear. This mimics the way the ghost claims he was killed.
Hamlet speaks to his mother about how disgusted he is that she is married to Claudius. Hamlet accidentally kills Polonius and is banished to England.
Claudius includes a letter to the King of England that orders Hamlet’s execution.Hamlet escapes and comes back to Denmark. Ophelia, crushed by Hamlet’sapparent disdain and the death of the father, has drowned herself.

Laertes stabs Hamlet. They grapple, and Laertes isstabbed by his own sword and also poisoned. Hamlet makes Claudius drink fromthe poison cup, and then stabs him with the poisoned sword. In the end, only Horatio is left to tell the story
