The aim of this essay is to discuss the evolution of Hamlet's character in the play and the obstacles that prevent him from acting. Shakespeare is the creator of the whole universe of art, he had incomparable imagination and knowledge of life, knowledge of men, therefore any analysis of his play is extremely interesting and instructive. To begin with, the plot of “Hamlet”, like almost all the other works of Shakespeare is adapted from previous literary tradition. Hamlet is undoubtedly the most recognized and famous play in the history of English language. The drama was written by William Shakespeare more than 400 years ago and shows the dramatic development achieved by him. Shakespeare is able to artistically depict prince Hamlet's struggle with moral integrity and the responsibility to take revenge of his father's death. Shakespeare is able to provide a new direction to dramas based on the theme of revenge and tragedy. Traditionally these tragedies focused on showing violent acts on the stage; Hamlet took a new approach to tragedy by introducing dilemma into the story. Like all of Shakespeare's plays, Hamlet makes strikingly original uses of borrowed material (Shakespeare, pp. 17).

Hamlet kept his love for Ophelia to himself and even rejected her in person. But he could not hold back his feeling upon her death. He openly admits his love for Ophelia upon her burial in the presence of Laertes. Laertes is the son of Polonius, whom prince Hamlet had killed in an accident when he was spying on him from behind a curtain. Laertes had to go through a tough time because of the madness of prince Hamlet, who ignored his sister Ophelia. She was madly in love with him and the prince only thought about his motives, his revenge. Laertes has a valid reason to hate Hamlet, although Hamlet could not find a single reason to hate him.

Hamlet is a prince of the sixteenth century. He lives in his palace in Denmark. Places where the work takes place are: House Polonio. the palace, the square in front of the palace and cemetery (Gooch, pp. 186).

Discussion and Analysis

The central story line of Hamlet is reflected in the kind of mirrors, the lines are two young heroes, each of which sheds new light on Hamlet. First is the line of Laertes, who, after his father's death falls into the same position as Hamlet after the appearance of the Ghost. Laerte takes the lessons of common sense and a bearer of Polonia established morality; he takes revenge on the murderer of his father, not shrinking conspiring with Claudius. Hamlet converts its sensational material, a vengeful ghost, a murder mystery, madness, a heartbroken maiden, a fistfight at her burial, and a climactic duel that results in four deaths into a daring exploration of mortality, morality, perception, and core existential truths. Shakespeare put mystery, intrigue, and sensation to the service of a complex, profound epistemological drama. Hamlet "reverberates with questions, anguished, meditative, and alarmed."
