Hamlet (also known as The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark) is a play by William Shakespeare. It tells the story of Prince Hamlet's plot to exact revenge on his uncle Claudius for the killing of his father. Claudius had murdered Hamlet's father in order to replace him on the throne. To add insult to injury, he also marries Hamlet's mother, Gertrude. While the plot develops, Ophelia, the daughter of the counsellor to the king, Polonius, has fallen in love with Hamlet but is ordered by her father to not take it any further.
One of Shakespeare's most powerful plays, it was also one of his most popular when he was alive, and remains one of the most performed till this day. The story itself came from the legend of Amleth, which can be found in Saxo Grammaticus' Danish History.
