This paper shows how the role of Hamlet has changed throughout the ages. The Jacobean English adaptations see Hamlet as a hero revenging wrongs set up against himself, focusing on his melancholy and malcontentism. The same character in eighteenth century German society was different and the version of the play was simplified. The paper looks at how the changes in society directly influenced the way that the play was performed and the character of Hamlet portrayed.

From the Paper:

"The Jacobean English interpretation of Hamlet sees Hamlet as a romantic avenger. But what is it really that makes Hamlet so romantic? The grief of his father's murder and the humiliation of his mother's marriage influence the unhappiness in Hamlet's soul, but there are other numerous tragedies that happen around him. "
