Probably the most famous play in the English
language, Hamlet transcends the revenge tradition
and explores the nature of man.
Learning that his father has been killed by Claudius,
his uncle, Hamlet's only honourable course of action
is revenge. But Hamlet's nature tends not towards
action but reflection and in his incapacity to act lies
the seed of his own destruction.
