For "canker of our nature" read "cancer of humanity. The first and most famous is the so-called "sentimental" theory of Goethe, leading poet of Germany, advanced in his Wilhelm Meister Following is a free translation from the German IV, ; V, 1: That which is impossible is required of him, — not the inherently impossible, but the impossible to him.
An oak-tree is planted in a costly vase, which should have borne only lovely flowers in its bosom; the roots spread, the vase is shattered. Horatio hesitates to take ths word of Bernardo and Francisco, and is convinced only by the actual sight of the ghost.
Ibsen has demonstrated this dramatically in Hedda Gabler. If Hamlet is the instrument of Divine Justice, since God operates in this world through human agencies, he is satisfied. During the course of this soliloquy Hamlet reveals that he does not want his heart to lose her nature and he wishes for the soul of Nero to enter his bosom.
In the same way, the ghost in Hamlet discloses to us the suspicions already in the minds of Hamlet and his friends. After baffled hours, often interrupted by cock-crow, he gives his message.
If the sentimental Hamlet had crossed him, he would have hurled him from his path with one sweep of his arm. Shakespeare attended grammar school, but his formal education proceeded no further.

As was common practice during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Shakespeare borrowed for his plays ideas and stories from earlier literary works.
The scepticism that all at first show concerning the ghost seems to indicate their unwillingness to put faith in their suspicions. By discussing mortality Hamlet again allows the audience to relate to him because he reveals he is afraid of dying. Hamlet reveals to the audience that he feels that if a man has no purpose he is no better than a beast so he must use his encounter with Fortinbras to spur his revenge.

The obvious one is the death of his father.
Hamlet is a tragic figure from the moment the audience encounters him, dressed in 'solemn black'. The second cause of Hamlet's tragedy is his mother's behaviour. Instead of sharing her son's grief, and supporting him through it, she has remarried with.
Five Classic Solutions of the Hamlet Problem Of the five classic attempts by eminent scholars and poets to solve the baffling problem of Hamlet's conduct, the first four are subjective (the fourth being purely pathological), and the fifth is objective, or based solely on external circumstances.
