The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark , often shortened to Hamlet ( / ˈ h æ m l ᵻ t / ), is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare at an uncertain date between 1599 and 1602. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark , the play dramatises the revenge Prince Hamlet is called to wreak upon his uncle, Claudius , by the ghost of Hamlet's father, King Hamlet. Claudius had murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying his deceased brother's widow.

Three different early versions of the play are extant: the First Quarto (Q1, 1603); the Second Quarto (Q2, 1604); and the First Folio (F1, 1623). Each version includes lines and entire scenes missing from the others. The play's structure and depth of characterisation have inspired much critical scrutiny. One such example is the centuries-old debate about Hamlet's hesitation to kill his uncle, which some see as merely a plot device to prolong the action, but which others argue is a dramatisation of the complex philosophical and ethical issues that surround cold-blooded murder, calculated revenge, and thwarted desire. More recently, psychoanalytic critics have examined Hamlet's unconscious desires , while feminist critics have re-evaluated and attempted to rehabilitate the often maligned characters of Ophelia and Gertrude.

    Fortinbras had nothing to do with revenge. His father had been killed by old King Hamlet THIRTY YEARS earlier. Young Fortinbras didn t shark up his army of thugs until after old King Hamlet (the man who had killed his father) had died. Then (1,2,17) ... young Fortinbras, Holding a weak supposal of our worth, Or thinking by our late dear brother s death Our state to be disjoint and out of frame, Colleagued with the dream of his advantage, He hath not fail d to pester us with message, Importing the surrender of those lands Lost by his father, with all bonds of law, To our most valiant brother. Cowardly Fortinbras probably expected (correctly) that cowardly King Claudius would not challenge him to a personal duel (as old King Hamlet would have). But Fortinbras had no problem sending thousands of commoners to their deaths so that he could violate the terms of the agreement made by his late father and steal some land. http://www.thyorisons.com/#Nutshell - Hamlet in a Nutshell - Hamlet Is an Anti-War Play ... with his dying words Hamlet proved that he was not "so like the king THAT was and IS THE QUESTION of these wars." He passed his inheritance of blood-soaked dirt along with the voice of Denmark to Fortinbras - without a war, thus saving the lives of thousands of his countrymen. The arrogant and cowardly Prince Fortinbras, who would send thousands of commoners to their graves for his "honour." is shocked that, at the Danish Court, "so many princes" have died. In contrast, Hamlet has just saved the lives of thousands of commoners by refusing to be so like the "honourable" Fortinbras. Even to this day, we are still so conditioned to bow to the divine rights of princes and presidents that Hamlet s concession to Fortinbras seems "dishonourable." But why should the common people go to their graves by the thousands for a straw, for a piece of ground not big enough to bury the dead, for the "honour" of pampered princes and pompous presidents? ***** The play is not mainly about revenge. But here are some miscellaneous revenge quotes: HAMLET (1,5,10-11) Speak; I am bound to hear. Ghost So art thou to revenge, when thou shalt hear. .. Ghost (1,5,29) Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder ... HAMLET (1,5,33-35) Haste me to know t, that I, with wings as swift As meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge. .. HAMLET (2,2,592-598) O, vengeance! Why, what an *** am I! This is most brave, That I, the son of a dear father murder d, Prompted to my revenge by heaven and hell, Must, like a whore, unpack my heart with words, And fall a-cursing, like a very drab, A scullion! ... HAMLET (3,1,132-138) I AM MYSELF indifferent honest; but yet I could accuse me of such things that it were better my mother had not borne me: I am very proud, revengeful, ambitious, with more offences at my beck than I have thoughts to put them in, imagination to give them shape, or time to act them in... But Hamlet was not himself: (5,2,228-231) If Hamlet from himself be ta en away, And when he s not himself does wrong Laertes, Then Hamlet does it not, Hamlet denies it. Who does it, then?... Answer: His father. Hamlet was possessed by his father s ghost when he erased himself from his own brain and wrote his father s commandment there. It was his warlike father who was "very proud, revengeful, ambitious." *** Laertes revenge: Laertes (4,5,140-145) To hell, allegiance! vows, to the blackest devil! Conscience and grace, to the profoundest pit! I dare damnation. To this point I stand, That both the worlds I give to negligence, Let come what comes; only I ll be revenged Most thoroughly for my father. ... LAERTES (5,2,239-245) I am satisfied in nature, Whose motive, in this case, should stir me most To my revenge: but in my terms of honour I stand aloof; and will no reconcilement, Till by some elder masters, of known honour, I have a voice and precedent of peace, To keep my name ungored. . LAERTES (5,2,304) [Aside] And yet tis almost gainst my conscience. Laertes killed Hamlet and himself (with a borrowed and lent sword) not for revenge but for a cause borrowed from his "elder master," the evil Claudius. Polonius (advising Laertes) (1,3,78-79) Neither a borrower nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend,

    In William Shakespeare ''''s play Hamlet , Gertrude is Hamlet ''''s mother and Queen of Denmark. Her relationship with Hamlet is somewhat turbulent, since he resents her marrying her husband''''s brother Claudius after he murdered the King (young Hamlet''''s father, King Hamlet ). Gertrude reveals no guilt in her marriage with Claudius after the recent murder of her husband, and Hamlet begins to show signs of jealousy towards Claudius. According to Hamlet, she scarcely mourned her husband''''s death before marrying Claudius.

    In the final scene, Gertrude notices Hamlet is tired during the fight with Laertes, and offers to wipe his brow. She drinks a cup of poison intended for Hamlet by the King, against the King''''s wishes, and dies, shouting in agony as she falls:

    Hamlet goes to confront his mother, in whose bedchamber Polonius has hidden behind a tapestry. Hearing a noise from behind the tapestry, Hamlet believes the king is hiding there. He draws his sword and stabs through the fabric, killing Polonius. For this crime, he is immediately dispatched to England with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. However, Claudius’s plan for Hamlet includes more than banishment, as he has given Rosencrantz and Guildenstern sealed orders for the King of England demanding that Hamlet be put to death.

    At this moment, a Norwegian prince named Fortinbras, who has led an army to Denmark and attacked Poland earlier in the play, enters with ambassadors from England, who report that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. Fortinbras is stunned by the gruesome sight of the entire royal family lying sprawled on the floor dead. He moves to take power of the kingdom. Horatio, fulfilling Hamlet’s last request, tells him Hamlet’s tragic story. Fortinbras orders that Hamlet be carried away in a manner befitting a fallen soldier.

    This line is spoken by Marcellus in Act I, scene iv (67), as he and Horatio debate whether or not to follow Hamlet and the ghost into the dark night. The line refers both to the idea that the ghost is an ominous omen for Denmark and to the larger theme of the connection between the moral legitimacy of a ruler and the health of the state as a whole. The ghost is a visible symptom of the rottenness of Denmark created by Claudius’s crime.

    A rationalist, by definition, is logical. And if he--not his friend, not his mother, not his pastor--sees a ghost, he will acknowledge as such. That's why Horatio freely admitted upon seeing the evidence. So I'm not sure what "blind rationalist" means.
