Homework Help: english/hamlet

Posted by Jessica on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 6:54pm.

i'm writing an essay on Hamlet comparing and contrasting the characters of Hamlet and Horatio. One of my paragraphs talks about the differences in their balance of character; Hamlet is unbalanced and dies, while Horatio is the ideal, balanced character who lives to tell the story. However, I'm having trouble finding specific evidence of Horatio's balance in the play. If anyone can remember any events it would be appreciated.

If you read the little blurb in the characters list here, you may get some ideas of the specifics. Then go back into the play to find in detail what happens whenever Horatio is mentioned -- exactly how and when does Horatio help Hamlet?

Obviously, the first is when he takes Hamlet to see his father-ghost, right? When else?
