Hamlet ~ Act IV Scene I
It's fascinating that Claudius blames himself for Hamlet's actions in the death of Polonius. He claims his guilt is because he did not restrain his nephew, but is there other guilt that is affecting his feelings?
Again, Claudius is calling on others to support his actions, making them at least partially responsible for the course on which he decides. Is this a crafty political move, or does Claudius' simply need emotional support in his new position?
