The throne is seemingly lost sot the young Hamlet and the shame cats upon by the inconsiderate mother weights upon his conscious. The soliloquy is also intensified by the ghost of Old Hamlet who creates a window of the events that culminated to his sudden demise.

After a long struggle with the meaning of death as well as the harbinger of a fruitless future that it carries, Hamlet contemplates suicide.
