"Hamlet" is a tragedy that scholars suggest William Shakespeare wrote sometime between 1599 and 1601. "Hamlet" takes place in Denmark. It is a story about Prince Hamlet, who takes revenge on his uncle Claudius because his uncle murdered his father-King Hamlet. After King Hamlet's assassination, Claudius marries Prince Hamlet's mother-Queen Gertrude-so he can take the royal throne and become King Claudius. "Hamlet" is a popular and influential tale that makes one consider life and death, power and justice, as well as action and uncertainty. These and other issues raised in the play are, arguably, the reasons "Hamlet" is still studied some four-hundred years after Shakespeare wrote, this, his longest play.

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, in 1564. The date of his birth is unknown but is celebrated on 23 April, which happens to be St George's Day, and the day in 1616 on which Shakespeare died.

Aged eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. They had three children. Around 1585 William joined an acting troupe on tour in Stratford from London, and thereafter spent much of his life in the capital. By 1595 he had written five of his history plays, six comedies and his first tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. In all, he wrote thirty-seven plays and much poetry, and earned enormous fame in his own lifetime in prelude to his immortality.
