Prince Hamlet of Denmark
Death by Poison
Polonius, Chief counselor to the king
As far as the play went, Polonius added another character that would help with the dynamic between Ophelia and Hamlet. We could all see that almost everything that Ophelia did and said was engineered by her father Polonius. Hence, everything that Ophelia did to/with Hamlet was all most always Polonius's idea. In this sense, Polonius was basically playing the part as himself as well as Ophelia. We could also see that he was a large and overall good force in Laertes life unlike the new king Claudius. In Act 1, scene II, Polonius was even talking to Laertes about acting rationally and being a good guy. This reflects a great deal on what type of guy Polonius was. In the end he was an eager, nosy, man who just wanted everything to go over smoothly for his family as well as the new king.
