In Shakespeare's play Hamlet, the main character and his sanity can be .
Many people agree that Hamlet may be the one of the most difficult character .
existing in any play. Many critics have offered many theories for Hamlet's actions, but .
none have adequately describe him. Many people view Hamlet as a deeply troubled youth .
who caused many unnecessary deaths. Critics who support this theory point out the cruel .
actions carried out by Hamlet, one example being the uncaring way Hamlet describes the .
way he had his two good friend, Rosencrantz and Guildentsern killed. Many portions of .
the play supports his loss of control in his actions with many indications throughout the .
play of Hamlet's mind's well being.
Hamlet's antic disposition may have caused him in certain times that he is .
in a roleplay. .
Hamlet has mood swings as his mood changes abruptly throughout the play. .
Hamlet appears to act mad when he hears of his father's murder. At the .
time he speaks wild and whirling words:Why, right; you are I' the right; .
And so, without more circumstance at all, I hold it fit that we shake .
hands and part. [Act I, scene V, lines 127-134]. It seems as if there .
are two Hamlets in the play, one that is sensitive and an ideal prince, .
and the insane barbaric Hamlet who from an outburst of passion and rage .
slays Polonius with no feeling of remorse, Thou wretched, rash, intruding .
fool, farewell! / I took thee for thy better. Take thy fortune;/ Thou .
find'st to be too busy is some danger.- [Act III. scene IV, lines 31-33] .
and then talks about lugging his guts into another room. After Hamlet .
kills Polonius he will not tell anyone where the body is. Instead he .
assumes his ironic matter which others take it as madness. Not where he .
eats, but where he is eaten. / A certain convocation of political worms a .
e'en at him.
