This paper considers the psychological picture of revenge in Shakespeare's play "Hamlet." The paper explains the tradition of the Elizabethan revenge play and uses Hamlet as a case study in the psychology of revenge.
From the Paper:"In his masterpiece "Hamlet," William Shakespeare closely adheres to the traditions of the Elizabethan revenge play as a crime is committed that goes unpunished by law and must be avenged by an injured party. Hamlet's obsession with his father's wrongful death and subsequent quest to both prove Cladius' guilt as well as punish the usurper to the crown, serve as the centerpiece of Shakespeare's revenge tale, though the theme is reinforced in Laertes' desire to avenge his father and sister's deaths."
