Hi, I'm writing an essay on how Hamlet is a participant of hypocrisy. Can anyone help me write a thesis statement. My points are that his father tells him to avenge him, but Hamlet takes a long time to do it, how Hamlet says he loves Ophelia but is the cause of her death, and how Hamlet says he loves his mother but treats her badly.

I don't want to start out with a simple thesis saying "Hamlet is a participant of hypocrisy because..." Does anyone know how else I can start my thesis?

You might try using his most famous speech "To be or not to be".... to be the avenger of my father or not, to be the protector of Ophelia or not, to be my mother's son, or not.

Yea, I like how that sounds.

Thanks.
