Hamlet Vs Christ

  • Both are standing against the establishment.
  • Both are acting upon their father’s wishes.
  • Both are full of doubts about sacrificing themselves for the greater good.
  • Both have status and followers.
  • Both have tragically unrealized romantic stories.
  • Both complete their missions dying in the process.

These are the “facts”. Are they common threads of a tragic hero (a literary device) or something deeper? Feel free to speculate in the comments below.
