  22. 22. Theme Development There are two main themes present in Act 3 Scene 1 of Hamlet. The two main themes are, Appearance vs. Reality and Action & Inaction. Appearance vs. Reality is apparent in line 47 in which Polonius tells Ophelia that people use appearance to “sugar o’er the devil” Following this line in like 52 Claudius privately admits that he is feeling guilt, which proves that Polonius cant tell the difference between Appearance and Reality.
  23. 23. Action & Inaction is present in this scene when the famous soliloquy “to be or not to be” is said. He is unable to act on what he feels is right. Secondly when Claudius realizes that Hamlet doesn’t love Ophelia nor does he angry, and thus suspects Hamlet knows about the murder and sends him to England. Claudius wastes no time think of possibilities but immediately acts upon his instincts.
