Hamlet Is a Tragic Hero

Hamlet: A Hero
Heros come in all different shapes in sizes. They are many different areas in which a person is considered heroic. They can be mentally heroic, physically heroic or morally heroic. The definition of a tragic hero is one who is distinguished by exceptional courage and nobility and strength but has one tragic flaw that leads to his or her demise. In William Shakespeare’s Hamlet the main character hamlet is a man whose father has died and he discovers from his fathers’ ghost that his fathers’ brother killed him. Hamlet displays all the characteristics of a tragic hero.
Hamlet's tragic flaw is his inconsistency when he approaches problems. When a problem arises that needs quick, decisive, behavior Hamlet is too slow. An example of this is seen when Hamlet has his knife over the head of Claudius, prepared to murder him, and he talks himself out of it. Another example of this is the play put on by Hamlet when he wants to have proof of his father's murder by Claudius. In reality, all Hamlet needs to do is act on the ghost's words. In turn Hamlet is also sometimes impulsive. An example of this is seen when he hears someone listening in on his conversation with his mother and with out thinking, Hamlet draws his sword and kills Polonius. There is a recognizable imbalance in his rational though and action and a prominent inconsistency.
