"To be or not to be--that is the question"(III.i.64)
Hamlet continues to develop the motif of death and what it means to be dead or alive. He compares sleeping to dying, and that man must think about whether or not their dreams are as good as their lives. This all comes after Hamlet again questions his need for revenge, while he'd like to follow his father's plans, he also wishes that life after death was know to be good so he could stop struggling to live.

Against the the warning signs Hamlet starts the fight. Although he will let fate takes its course, he wants to take care of a few things before he dies.
