Countless authors have tried to display love as human nature, but no author does this better than the famous playwright, William Shakespeare. To understand how love controls a person, one must understand that human nature is the sum of qualities and traits shared by all humans. All humans have exhibit love in one way or another, which explains how human nature relates to the controlling aspect of love. In Hamlet, one can see that Hamlet obviously loves his father.
Hamlet is a classic example of humans relying on their innate senses to guide them through life, and ultimately, to their death. In this play by William Shakespeare, there are three characters that rely on human nature to conquer, defeat, and overrule: Claudius, Laertes, and Hamlet.
Claudius knows what he wants and knows what he has to so to achieve it. Claudius kills him to get power. Power is an animalistic goal that mankind has fought for since the creation of man. Pray can I not, though inclination is as sharp as [carnal desire]" Hamlet also threatens the king.
The king knows that Hamlet has been conspiring to kill him; therefore, he needs to protect himself from Hamlet. After all, Claudius knows that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are lifelong friends of Hamlet, and yet he still bribes them to spy on Hamlet. Claudius set his morals and reason aside to abolish anyone in his way of what he wants.
Laertes is a nature-driven man. Laertes is an animalistic in that he wills so what is necessary to keep his family safe. To hell allegiance, vows to the blackest devil, Conscience and grace to the profoundest pit! Laertes understands the consequences of getting revenge for his father and sister.
Hamlet represents human nature in its most raw state.Claudius begins his speech saying, “’Tis sweet and commendable in your nature, Hamlet, To give these mourning duties to your father“, but that he “must know your father lost a father, That father lost, lost his.”() But he insults Hamlet, adding “’Tis unmanly grief.”() This is the opposite of what Claudius says to.

William Shakespeare, HUMAN NATURE AND THE HUMAN CONDITION. THE NOBILITY OF THE HUMAN BEING Hamlet, Act II, Scene ii. lines — What a piece of work is a man!
How noble in reason! How infinite in faculties! in form and moving how express and admirable! in . Hamlet shows human nature to be greedy, self-involved and vengeful. Claudius is driven by his own greed to commit murder. Polonius is always looking out for himself.
Hamlet thinks of vengeance from the moment he finds out about Claudius killing his father. Human nature has been all of these things, but it has also changed through the ages. If you look closely at Hamlet's soliloquys, you can find a lot of good material.
In his "to be or not to be" speech, Hamlet examines the very nature of human existence. Thoughts on human nature do not trouble Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as they do Hamlet, and they are content in their ignorance.
