Hamlet is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness-from overwhelming grief to seething rage-and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.

Hamlet learns from the Ghost of his father that his father was killed by his uncle, who has since married Hamlet's mother. Hamlet decides to act crazy while figuring out what to do. His uncle Claudius sets spies on him because of his crazy behaviour. Hamlet confirms that the Ghost was telling the truth by putting on a play mirroring the murder of his father. Unfortunately this also tips Claudius off (he was pretty suspicious anyway) Hamlet catches and kills a spy in his mother's bedroom. Unfortunately it is the king's advisor Polonius. Claudius sends Hamlet to England. Polonius's son Laertes comes from France to revenge his father. Claudius tells him that Hamlet had killed Polonius. Hamlet doesn't get to England because of pirates, and returns to Denmark. Claudius and Laertes set up a Fencing match where Hamlet is to be murdered by an unbuttoned poisoned sword and a poisoned cup of wine. Hamlet gets cut by the poisoned sword but so does Laertes, and Hamlet's mother drinks the poisoned wine. Before he dies, Hamlet stabs and poisons Claudius to death.
