  • The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, often shortened to Hamlet (/ ˈ h æ m l ɪ t /), is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare at an uncertain date between 1599 and 1602. Set in 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 ...

  • Hamlet is a revenge story that is perhaps like any other- a son's quest for avenging his father's murder. But it has been said that nothing is new under the sun.

  • Jean-Louis Trintignant in the role of Hamlet, at the Théâtre de la Musique, Paris, 1971. In the decades after it was first staged, probably in 1600, Hamlet seems to have been popular, though not especially so. It was performed at the Globe Theatre, in Oxford, Cambridge, and elsewhere, and revived at least twice at court.

  • The Death of Polonius and its Impact on Hamlet's Character From The System of Shakespeare's dramas. by Denton Jaques Snider.St. Louis: G. T. Jones and Company. The death of Polonius has given great difficulty, and even offense; its object should be fully comprehended, for it not only illustrates the character of Hamlet, but also is one of the leading motives of the play.

  • Had a hard week at work? If the answer is YES you need our "Friday Feeling" Enjoy an evening and unwind here at Guy's Thatched Hamlet for only £95 per couple.

  • Winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor, Sir Laurence Olivier's Hamlet continues to be the most compelling version of Shakespeare's beloved tragedy.

  • Hamlet is Shakespeare's most popular, and most puzzling, play. It follows the form of a "revenge tragedy," in which the hero, Hamlet, seeks vengeance against his father's murderer, his uncle Claudius, now the king of Denmark.
