Hamlet’s “rogue and peasant slave” soliloquy communicates that Hamlet’s tragic flaw, his failure to act, reflects the flaws of his state. As the prince, he is given the authority to make decisions and act on them. However, he does not and as a result, his failure leads to the downfall of his nation. This tragedy informs the audience to be meticulous when contemplating actions, or the lack thereof because there are always repercussions. While Hamlet’s idleness is exasperating, he demonstrates an informative experience of the dangers of inaction. By embracing indecisiveness and avoiding risks, one can strip their potential and power to bring change.
