Hamlet doesn't like his uncle. He finds his Claudius insincere. Hamlet is especially upset at how quickly Claudius married his mother after his brother's death. Claudius gives a speech that a politician might. His tone is friendly and conciliatory, yet there is a sense that his brother's death does not really weigh heavy on his mind. Hamlet resists Claudius's overtures to be his new "son".
