Shakespeare’s Hamlet is a tragedy in all sense of the word. Its most prominent characters, Hamlet, Ophelia, Gertrude, Claudius, and Laertes, all of whom die, do not do so before going through the most tortuous and devastating of mishappenings. From the very beginning, we learn that Hamlet’s father, the king, has just died. And, only two months after, Hamlet’s mother marries his father’s brother. Hamlet is clearly distressed about his father’s death, but what brings about his suspicions is a visit from his father’s supposed ghost, who tells him that Claudius, Hamlet’s uncle, poisoned him.
The play of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is full of many acts of betrayal. One such of these acts is when Hamlet goes against the wishes of his father’s ghost and debates on whether or not he should kill Claudius. Not only this but he also is extremely cruel to his mother and hurts her feelings which were also against the wishes of the ghost. He wanted Hamlet to avenge his death without hurting others along the way and almost everything Hamlet did in the play went against that. Hamlet’s first act of betrayal against the ghost of his father is one that stretches throughout the entire book.

Hamlet, is by far, one of Shakespeare’s most diverse characters seen as Hamlet is a reflection of many of the other characters around him: His ghostly father, his traitorous mother and uncle, his best friend, and his lover (who also represents her father and brother).

After the death of Hamlet’s father, readers soon come to see that Hamlet’s father is poisoned, which in turn leads to the both literal and figurative poisoning of Hamlet and all other characters that Hamlet represents. This image of poison shows that the kingdom has been corrupted and poisoned, not just Hamlet’s father. William Shakespeare uses the recurring image of poison throughout Hamlet to symbolize the corruption of Hamlet, Claudius, Gertrude, Ophelia and her family, Horatio, and the kingdom of Elsinore, both mentally and physically.
Hamlet, in the play Hamlet is made out to be crazy but in reality he is not grieving correctly. He is constantly faced with death and hardships and almost never catches a break. While Hamlet is not exactly in the denial stage, he is certainly in the dead center of the other four stages.

His Uncle, Claudius, killed his father so that he could be king and then proceeded to marry his mother.

The 1990 reenactment with Mel Gibson made Hamlet to be juvenile, cold, and apathetic. Shakespeare 's works were intended as plays, not as novels. When Hamlet is viewed as a script it doesn 't have the same effect as the movie does, but yet Hollywood 's attempt created, a senselessly adapted, ill-conceived, poorly acted mess of a film that 's guaranteed to frustrate anyone who loves the play and to put everybody else to sleep.
