Hamlet's uncle Claudius has assumed the role of king after the suspicious death of his brother. To the disgust of Hamlet, Claudius has also married Hamlet's mother, the Queen Gertrude. As Hamlet contemplates murdering King Claudius, the court interprets his erratic behavior as insanity. The play features oft-quoted characters Polonius, Ophelia, Laertes, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
