We say this, but do we follow it? No, I think not. We all try to take revenge into our own hands, in one form or another. Revenge is one strong theme that holds throughout “Hamlet”. We see Princ

With the epithet devouring he addresses a greedy, ravenous hunger, a Time that is wastefully destructive. Conceding to Time its wrongs, th
