was miss interpreted by others as a loves craziness. His current state came out of the real situation he was exposed to at the beginning, but he was lucky in his ability to overcome it. The role of the madman would give him the opportunity to get closer to the secret of his uncle without being a station of a doubt by anyone. This protagonist had underestimated the abilities of others and their ability to know why he was angry, especially that made his two friends swear not tell anyone about the ghost. This was very true as Polonius had misjudged the reason for Hamlet’s condition. Luckily, an unintended help came out from his uncle by calling actors from out of the pace to act a good play for him, so it would take him out of his mental state. Cleverly, by pursuing the text of the play, he was accessible to his uncle’s weaknesses and this way he was infuriating. This is the strategy Hamlet used to deal with his sinner stepfather- he did not hurt him physically but morally. He managed to hit the target through the aggressive reaction of his uncle. “[His] uncle began to shout to stop the play and left the room at a very lightning speed asking for light” as if he had troubled to breathe (Shakespeare). Hamlet struggles make him smarter and grew him wiser.
