- Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark he came home to the castle in Elsinore from the University in Wittenberg for the funeral of his father the King. His grief and anger over his fathers death is amplified with he finds out that his uncle (Claudius) takes the throne and marries Hamlet’s mother (Queen Gertrude) two months after the old King’s death.
- In this Character description of Hamlet, I describe Hamlet as smart witty and determined. Near the beginning of the play after Polonius’s death Hamlet appears to be insane. There are indications that persuade me to think otherwise. Certainly, Hamlet has plenty of reasons to be insane at this point, his day has been hectic; he finally determined Claudius had killed his father when the ghost of his father came to visit him and let him know; and with a chance to kill Claudius while confronting him, he comes very close to convincing Gertrude that Claudius killed his father.
- 1. As the play opens, Hamlet is troubled by the turn of events following his father’s death. It seems (and later becomes apparent), that Hamlet’s upset is caused more by the remarriage of his mother and her love and devotion towards Claudius so soon after King Hamlet’s death, than by simple mourning of his fathers passing.
