Thereof, what happens at the end of Hamlet?
There are a ton of things that take place at the end of Hamlet, but at the end of Hamlet, he finally gets his revenge on Claudius and Fortinbras is crowned the new King. After the intense events that happen after Gertrude dies, one after another each character meets their death.
Likewise, is the ending of Hamlet satisfying? Laertes asks “Exchange forgiveness with me, noble Hamlet” (5.2. 330) and Hamlet accepts. However, the ending of Hamlet is not solely depressing in death. It is satisfying in that the hero of the play was redeemed and found favor again and the readers/watchers of the play have someone to cheer for again.
Subsequently, question is, does Hamlet kill himself at the end of the play?
Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death, and seeks revenge. His uncle, fearing for his life, also devises plots to kill Hamlet. The play ends with a duel, during which the King, Queen, Hamlet's opponent and Hamlet himself are all killed.
Who dies in the final scene of Hamlet?
Hamlet, in a fury, runs Claudius through with the poisoned sword and forces him to drink down the rest of the poisoned wine. Claudius dies crying out for help. Hamlet tells Horatio that he is dying and exchanges a last forgiveness with Laertes, who dies after absolving Hamlet.
