I checked the rephrase as you recommended to me. Thanjk you

1)Hamlet wonders whether it is better to bear the nasty things which luck throws his (our) way or to make a stand against his mass of troubles.
2) He can oppose his troubles either by committing suicide or by killing Claudius.
3) Two philosophical positions, which remain (?) unreconciled in Hamlet's monologue, are expressed in the first lines: one is the Stoic attitude of enduring life's evils and misfortune at all costs and to an end; the other is the belief that, man may end life by suicide (I think not only by suicide but by killing Claudius too!!).
4) The medieval perspective of death, which saw death as a liberation from the prison of the body, is countered by the Renaissance one, which was doubtful about (OR doubted) the existence of an afterlife.
5) Actually, the Bible uses such images as "sleep in the dust" for death and the Burial Service refers to death as a sleep. Shakespeare's audience was perfectly familiar with such images.

    3) remove comma in "that, man may end life"

    4) Having had an "out of body experience" in the hospital, there IS a better place! (Sorry, expounding on nothing to do with your post.)

    Everyting else AOK.

    In addition to Sra's comments:

    1) ... his way or ...
    (The pronoun "his" refers to Hamlet, the subject of your sentence; "our" would be a shift in person ... not a good idea.)

    2) He can solve his problems either by committing suicide or by killing Claudius.

    3) Two philosophical positions, which remain unreconciled in Hamlet's monologue, are expressed in the first lines: one is the stoic attitude of enduring life's evils and misfortune at all costs and to an end; the other is the belief that man may end life by suicide.

    Killing Claudius is a totally different issue, addressed later in the play. ~~> (I think not only by suicide but by killing Claudius too!!).

    4) The medieval perspective of death -- liberation from the prison of the body -- is countered by the Renaissance viewpoint, which doubted the existence of an afterlife.

    5) Actually, the Bible uses such images as "sleep in the dust" for death, and the Burial Service refers to death as a sleep. Shakespeare's audience was perfectly familiar with such images.
