    you have answered your own question. Hamlet’s fascination with death reveals societal values. This is not the celebration of a marriage but mourning, all you have to do is expand your own idea more – this is what essay writing is all about.Relate the feelings of a funeral to that of society and some of the characters. i.e somber, quiet, hopelessness,,, even depression and there you have it… an essay.
