An analysis of the character of Hamlet. This paper debates whether Hamlet was faking his madness throughout the play or whether he was really insane. The writer provides a brief synopsis of the plot and examines scenes from the play which would justify sanity or insanity.

From the Paper:

"In William Shakespeare's play of the same name, the character of Hamlet appears to be insane to the casual observer. However, many incidents show that Hamlet is simply faking this madness. In exchanges where he appears irrational, his subtle sarcasm may often be misinterpreted. Hamlet also acts irrational as a guise to attempt to buy him time and manipulate other individuals. Further, Hamlet remains rational and logical throughout the play, indicating that he is, in fact, sane."
