One of the most analyzed plays in existence is Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet, with its recurring question: “Is Hamlet’s madness feigned or real?” This question can only be answered through the portrayal of his character when he is associated with the other characters in the play. In Shakespeare’s play Prince Hamlet pretends to insane or mad, in order to thwart and baffle those who prevent him in his quest for revenge. Hamlet poses a viable threat to Claudius’ throne whether sane or insane, and Hamlet’s supposed insanity provides justification for detrimental action. Hamlet clearly has some tricks up his sleeve and has well thought out this fabricated madness.
To begin, ever since the death of the King, young Hamlet has been what seems to be a in a state of madness.
After the death of his father Prince Hamlet is melancholy, bitter, and full of hatred for his uncle’s repulsive acts. These characteristics make the reader believe that Hamlet has a real pathological condition. But there is a great deal of evidence that he is doing this to prevent those who are trying to lay hands on hi.
