Hamlet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare. Hamlet is the
protagonist of the play and is portrayed as a very emotional soul, a
daring, brave character who has a bad and violent temper.
Hamlet is a very emotional young man. As we all know, his father's
death was a shock for him and he could not get over it. Claudius mentions
that Hamlet was taking the mourning of his father's death to extremes:
showed first 75 words of 932 total
showed last 75 words of 932 total
or set up "The Mousetrap", the play would not have been
where it is now since he wouldn't know what happened to his father.
