3rd April 15, 2013 Is hamlet really insane? I think he’s not he’s just fouling the people around him but the act soon becomes no more than a act because he starts to question himself ‘though this madness, yet there is method in it’ he takes it just a lil to far because he is insane to revenge his father death.
