Is Hamlet’s Revenge Justified?
In my personal opinion, there are two types of revenge. There is the revenge when someone stoops to the level of his adversary, and when one oversees the problem. Revenge is the first recurring method of counterattack, and as a drug, its effects lasts almost nothing. It would be immoral to act in a form of revenge, because one is not acting because of its way of living, nor of need, but just to make another pay evenly. When it comes to revenge, the only thing one achieves is becoming the same as the other person,`﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽hing one achive is on becoming as rsuing to be as bad as the one hated for the act commited at first. st to be even. nas the asassafsaoifsfh which I doubt is what someone wants to accomplish. “Revenge is a dish better served cold” is one of the most exact references to the feeling of revenge. It is the “adrenaline rush” at the moment it happens, which references on the word “cold”, which makes the idea of revenge surge. In moments of sanity, this acts of “rush” for revenge, are unthinkable. This is why prince Hamlet seems maniac from the point of view of other people; they aren’t feeling the same things as he is. It is true that he was going thru some crazy things in his head and that the ghost was on his back trying to make him take revenge on all the characters, but anyways, that’s not a reason to take revenge on someone because at the end he will be conscious about his wrong act and it wont let him be happy and live in peace. As Hamlet’s states in the book, “Conscience doth make cowards of us all”, which means that conscience as we know is a double-edged sword and it can have negative and positive outcomes. Our conscience awakens the "what if?" question in us and most of the time its pulls us back from taking actions we were once very close of doing. We become cowards because we let our conscience drive us towards another direction, one involving emotions.

The most common way of revenge is to do something as bad or worst as the previous attack, but this time the blow will land in a deeply investigated (rummaged) weak spot of the enemy, and it will hurt, especially if it is made in public. Now the weak spot of one’s opponent is publicly known, and an open wound for future attacks. So no, revenge is not a good thing to commit; it is in fact, instantly and momentarily satisfying, but on the long shot, foolish for one’s mind. Now, another thing is letting people hurt others without getting caught. There is no need of revenge when there are mature ways of solving a problem. For example, when I was in high school a classmate tore to pieces my assignment so I couldn’t get high grades. Revenge, in this case, would be doing the same to him or throwing
