Claudius, like Laertes and Fortinbras, as a foil, is given qualities
that contrast with Hamlet's self defeating character.  His ability to
rise optimistic, from despair and self-abnegation and get back to work,
contrasts with Hamlet's miring himself in self-doubt and self-sabotage,
and but for Gertrude's drinking problem, he would have succeeded. It's a
Renaissance version of Seven Habits of Highly Successful People.
