A young prince meets with his father`s ghost, who alleges that his own brother, now married to his widow, murdered him. The prince devises a scheme to test the truth of the ghost`s accusation, feigning wild madness while plotting a brutal revenge until his apparent insanity begins to wreak havoc on innocent and guilty alike. Hamlet`s combination of violence, introspection, dark humour and rich language is intoxicating. It remains the world`s most widely studied and performed play, and is a cornerstone of world literature.
