Below is an essay on "Chaos in Hamlet" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

Hamlet has a lot of Chaos in it. From the beginning of the play we see Chaos, or at least the beginning of it, in the form of the ghost. He disrupts normal life and then he asks his son for revenge. The task that has been asked of Hamlet brings chaos into his life. Hamlet struggles with himself, he begins to act strangely. Just look at the scene with himself and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, he acts strangely, he disrupts normal life in the palace, he too brings chaos to Ophelia's life too. She apparently loses her mind and ends her life with suicide. Polonius is killed. Laertes wants to avenge the death of his father by killing Hamlet. The royal family is chaotic and disrupted. The final scene of Laertes and Hamlet's fight, and then finally the death of most characters, this is a scene of Chaos. Then compare this to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. In almost every sense, everything is ordered. The Nurse has everything timed and in Order. Meetings happen at exactly the same time, on time, people get the same amount of time to speak, and say very little. They have no opinion of value that will disrupt life in the ward. They are orderly and do what they are told, when they are told. McMurphy brings chaos, he hates the Nurse for silencing everyone and keeping them trapped. There is very little Order in Hamlet, things never go well, many people are keeping secrets, double crossing and trying the manipulate one another (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern for example), Hamlet himself is being manipulted by the ghost. Things go wrong, because there are too many things overlapping one another for there to be order.
