dc.description.abstract The study of the question of why Shakespeare's Hamlet delays killing Claudius in revenge for his father's murder is examined in light of the major critical theories from neo-classical to modern scholarship. An expanded treatment of the works of Fredson Bowers, Eleanor Prosser, Bertram Joseph, and Roland Frye, is provided to examine the Elizabethan background of social, political, and religious values. The experience of passionate revenge on the human psyche of the revenger is addressed through an ancillary approach provided through the works of the Freudian analyst Ernest Jones and the psychoanalytic theory of Avi Erlich. The purpose of this study is to review the relevant theories of Hamlet's delay, and to apply the wisdom gleaned from such an examination so as to create a synthesis that may best answer the question of why Hamlet delays. en_US
