Hamlet = revenge hero?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet : One Thread
do you see Hamlet as a disappointment as a revenge hero? because i do yet my teacher thinks that because he tries to confrot his mother about her marraige, that he's trying to uphold his family name that he is not. and is a disappiontment because he thinks about all the consequences?

You mean he should have got the blazes on with plotting, killing, maiming, slandering, maybe a bit of arson, rape and other forms of violence and abuse?
I do not see him as a 'revenge hero'. He doesn't see himself as one, and doesn't want to be one. And who the hell would want one? So I don't see him as a disappointment either.
