Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master Hamlet hesitates to kill Claudius to avenge his father's death, but as Claudius is praying, he decides to find a more suitable time. Indeed, if he kills him now, Claudius would risk having his sins absolved. Claudius, who has not seen Hamlet, then stands up and acknowledges that his prayers are pointless because they are not sincere, and that his lack of remorse makes them meaningless.
