Shakespeare, Hamlet (Acts 1 & 2) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Queen Gertrude: Let not thy mother lose her prayers, Hamlet: I pray thee, stay with us; go not to Wittenberg.

Hamlet: I shall stay in all my best obey you, madam.

King Claudius: Why, 'tis a loving and fair reply...

I think part really explains a lot. Hamlet wants to go to Wittenberg and the king doesn't want him to. The queen also doesn't want him to go so Hamlet stays because the queen wants him to not because of the king. The king is very mean to Hamlet. Hamlet doesn't like him either because he killed his father (hence the ghost).

I think he listened to his mother because in a way Hamlet really doesnt like his uncle Cladius. His uncle before basically is rubbing in Hamlets face that he is now the king of the throne.
