An illustration of a young Hamlet. Hamlet is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1601.

The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness&mdash;from overwhelming grief to seething rage&mdash;and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.
