Some thoughts on Hamlet

 

It utterly surprises me how Prince Hamlet is portrayed. More often than not, he is considered insane. It is sad how people mistake depression for insanity. Hamlet is such a unique figure in literature. He plays the role of a madman to continue his father’s plot and to find a purpose in life yet alone struggles with anxiety and depression. I guess Shakespeare succeeded with Hamlet because people mock his character even in film.
