Claudius what are your motives for killing the king, marrying his wife
and taking on the role of father to his young son?
Claudius is introduced in act I, ii. In this scene he has an important
speech. In this speech he talks about the death of the king, his marriage to the
queen and the foreign problems of the state. He utilizes many transitions and
tends to empiseze the foreign affairs of the state. I don't know what to make of
this, it could mean various things. It could mean that Claudius is making a grab
for power shown in his concentration on the foreign polices trying to distract
from his lust for power, along with his marriage to the queen giving the change

finds two of Hamlets good friends to spy on him and try to find out what wrong
with him. At this point we know that Hamlet knows that Claudius killed his
father but we don't know whether Claudius knows that hamlet knows or even if he
suspects, this cast a strange light on this scene. First if Claudius suspects
hamlet knows that he killed his father then we might assume that Claudius is
sending these spy to find out for sure if he knows, but if he dose not suspect
hamlet then this might be another show of Claudius's affection towards Hamlet.
So the same question keeps coming up dose Claudius like Hamlet or is he just
using him? At this point it to hard to tell so we must delve deeper in to the
story and there is still the mater of the queen. Claudius is marred to the queen
but dose he ...
