Hamlet (Signet Classics)
Upon seeing the ghost of his recently deceased father, Prince Hamlet is told by the spectral figure that he was murdered by his brother Claudius. At his father's request, the young Prince of Denmark dedicates his life to avenging his father's murder. His indecision and his madness - feigned or real - result in his tragic downfall. Filled with belligerent confrontations and poignant soliloquies, Hamlet provides all the elements of a classic Shakespearean tragedy.
