Can you please check these sentences as a comment to the famous soliloquy "To be or not to be"?

1)Hamlet wonders whether it is better to leave things as they are bearing the “slings and arrows” of outrageous fortune or to make a stand against his mass of troubles.
2)He can put an end to them either by committing suicide or by killing Claudius. (OR: The end of the troubles can be brought about either by killing the king or by taking his own life.)
3) The idea of death as a sleep plays an increasingly important part. It is a concept with which Shakespeare’s audience was perfectly familiar; the Bible uses such images as “sleep in the dust” for death, and their Burial Service referred to death as a sleep. 4)As the speech moves on, Hamlet seems to turn more specifically to suicide; he begins to doubt the value of this solution, because man cannot be sure of what will happen after death, and has no proof that human suffering stops at that point.
5)In particular, the Medieval perspective in which Hamlet sees death as physical liberation from the prison of the body and earthly affliction is countered by the doubt of the Renaissance man, concerning the after life.
