Below is an essay on "Hamlet, the contemplative,cruel, and oedipal Prince of Denmark" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

This report is based on the study of Hamlet, the hero in the play, who is proven to have complex personality traits. Throughout the play, Hamlet acts as a dynamic character since his personality is greatly influenced by the news of his father’s death, his mother’s remarriage, and his uncle’s conspiracy. Due of Hamlet’s various and constantly changing characteristics, it is hard for audiences to fully understand this character. After a close study of the character’s speeches, actions, and reputations in other characters’ eyes, I am organizing and presenting my findings in this report, and hope it can assist further studying of the play.
