From this research it is clear that in Hamlet, a Danish prince is mourning the death of his father, also named Hamlet. His mother has married Claudius less than one month after Hamlet Sr.’s death. Moreover, young Hamlet was informed by the ghost of his father that Claudius killed him. This is enough to make anybody in this situation feel the same way that Hamlet does – depressed, angry, and ineffectual.
In his dazzling career, Shakespeare generated literary compositions of art. What distinguishes Shakespeare to other renowned writers of his era, or subsequently, is his aptitude to systematize a sensible plot, administer themes, and build up characters in his composition.
Prince Hamlet acknowledge about his Father’s killer when his Father’s ghost itself appears in front of him and let out the truth.

The first public performance of the play was held before the arrival of the first print version, in 1602. The story itself is said to have borrowed from a number of previously existing works.
The focus of this paper is to identify the pattern in which Hamlet talks about himself and his dilemma throughout the book. In Hamlet, the main dilemma is to be or not to be both for himself and for King Claudius who is the murderer of his father.
Ophelia falls for Hamlet, but Polonius, his father, dismisses it fearing that she will be heartbroken.
