Hi, If anyone has read Hamlet...I have to write an essay showing how Hamlet is a hypocrite or similar.

I need 3 main points of proof.
I only have one, which is that Hamlet says he loves Ophelia but hes the cause of her death and he shunned her.

I need two more points.

His father's ghost showed up and told him about the murder and demanded revenge. What did Hamlet do? Obey?

Hamlet says he loves his mother, but how did he treat her in her own chambers?

??

How is Hamlet a hypocrite though, if he does not obey his father?

Does he say he will do this, right away, to his friends? (And make them swear an oath of secrecy about the ghost?) So why do we have a five-act play, during which time he never carries out the ghost's instructions?

??
