Hamlet Act 1 Scene 2
Oh, that this too, too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fixed His cannon 'gainst self-slaughter.....
Hamlet Act 1 Scene 5
O all you host of heaven! O earth! What else? And shall i couple hell? Oh, fie! Hold, hold, my heart, and you, my sinews....
Hamlet Act 2 Scene 2
You cannot, sir, take from me anything that i will more willingly part withal- except my life.....
This is very important to look at for the character of Hamlet. Hamlet has lots of things going on at this point into the story. His love for Ophelia, the pain of his father's death, and uncle marrying mommy. Hamlet, because of all these, decides is upset the the point of death wishing he would melt away and that God would allow him to die.
I feel that this is very important. Hamlet has now seen the ghost of his father. He has found out about the truth of his death and his uncles betrayal. Hamlet is now going off about his new task, vengeance.
I find this ironic to Hamlet's character. We see a lot of this man wanting to no longer live. This has been brought about by his circumstance in life. But now this draws the question that for vengeance, is life worth living now? Or does it still mean nothing?
