As it was mentioned before, Gertrude is shown as a very contrasting character in this play. She may be blamed for her quick marriage and attitude to her son who is very contradictious. In one moment Gertrude feels guilty and also sorrow for what she has done to her son, but at the next moment she does not understand Hamlet and his behaviour. Gertrude may be seen as a bad mother, but I think that she did not know how to act after her husband’s death. She had to marry Claudius, because she needed somebody, who could help her to rule over the Denmark.
Hamlet loved his mother although she married so quickly after his father’s death and did not morn for a long time. At the same time Hamlet understood his mother because as he said that she is just a weak woman without her own thoughts and decisions. I think that exactly Gertrude and her sinful behaviour was the main cause of Hamlet’s behaviour and ‘madness’. Hamlet needed and wanted that his own mother would believe him and help to reveal Claudius’ bad intentions and his fault in King Hamlet’s death, but at the same time Gertrude wanted to feel sure and secure after her husband’s death.
