Hamlet has mother issues throughout the play. He really cannot get over the fact that she married his uncle so soon after his father's death. In Act 2 sc 2, the players visit the castle. Hamlet has the main player recite lines from Virgil’s Aeneid that speaks of the wild grief of Hecuba, Priam’s wife, after her husband has been killed. This juxtaposes Gertrude's quick union with Claudius after Hamlet Sr. dies.
