A short summary of Hamlet
Summary of Hamlet Hamlet is the son of the late king Hamlet (who dies about two months before the play starts). After his father dies, his brother Claudius becomes king and marries the queen of Denmark, Gertrude. Hamlet dreads that Claudius killed his own brother, King Hamlet, to be the king of Denmark, which terribly angers him. Two officers of the king, Marcellus and Bernardo beckon Hamlet's friend, Horatio, and later Hamlet himself to see the late King Hamlet's ghost appear at midnight. Privately, the ghost tells Hamlet that Claudius really did kill him by pouring poison into his ear while he was sleeping. Hamlet gets angry and devises a plan to revenge against Claudius. Hamlet is so furious, he acts like a lunatic so Claudius, Gertrude, and Polonius send Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to spy on Hamlet to
Polonius then sends Laertes to France (then later sends Reynaldo to spy on Laertes) and had told Ophelia never to socialize with Hamlet. Hamlet is so angry that he even is rude to Ophelia, which makes Polonius think Hamlet is just madly in love. Laertes has poison on the end of his sword, so with one slash, Hamlet will be dead. While going to England, Hamlet finds the orders for him to be killed and switches them for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to be killed, which does take place, but then Hamlet is kidnapped by pirates. Ophelia too becomes mad and falls in a stream and drowns. While the dying queen is screaming that she has been poisoned, Laertes, who is also dying, admits what Claudius has done. ------------------------------------------------------------------------Bibliography.

While Hamlet is dying, he tells the real story of King Hamlet"tms death along with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern's deaths to everyone.
