In Act III, Scene 1 of Hamlet, the famous ‘To be or not to be’ soliloquy explores the complex issue of life and death. Hamlet contemplates whether it is better to be alive or dead, and he concludes that the fear of the afterlife causes excessive moral sensitivity, making it difficult to take action. The line “Thus conscience does make cowards of us all” is a profound judgment that refers to those who choose to live. The religious dimension of suicide intensifies the fear of the unknown after death. However, the issue is not only about suicide but also about Hamlet’s mission to avenge his father’s death by killing his murderer, Claudius. Throughout the play, Hamlet struggles with the conflict between convention and sin, and at the end of the soliloquy, he decides that too much thinking may prevent him from taking the necessary action.
