The real question is Hamlet crazy or is he just acting it. In
my opinion there are many things throughout the play that
make me tend to believe that he is crazy. When Hamlet
enters Opheliu's room and she has the question if he is truly
mad or if he is just acting. Hamlet is proven o be crazy in this
play and statements and actions he days and does are the
thing that prove this. There are many things that make me
tend to beleive that Hamlet is crazy. There are also many
things that he does that does not want to make you think that
he is crazy but for others to think this of him it just make me
want to beleive even more that he is crazy. One of the things
that shows that he is crazy is that he contemplates suicide or
as Hamlet says "self slaughter", this is definately a true act of
pure craziness. Hamlet also wants to believe that he see's
this ghost of his father that is odd because when he is in the
room with his mother he starts to talk to the ghost and the
mother does not see it. Also when he walked into Ophelius's
room he just stood there staring at her for a long time and no
normal person does this. This is just another example of one
of the examples that proves that Hamlet is crazy. Hamlet
also has a lot of evil in him like when he killed Polomius for
no reason when he was behind the curtains in his moms
room. Also when he see's his Uncle Claudius praying he is
deciding whether or not it is a good idea to kill him. These
are just other examples how I think that he is crazy. Another
importnt thing to show that he is crazy is that he has no fear
like when he started to follow his father apparation even
when Horatio said don't go because it could be dangerous.
He also does things that are very odd and random like when
Ophelius and him were wathcing the play he just put his
head in her lap and started mumbling about nothing. Hamlets
image has also got very scrubby by the way he dresses and
the way he looks. Ophelius said that when she saw him she
was scared. These are all examples about why I think that
Hamlet is crazy and this is why Ophelius thinks that he is
crazy when He came into his room. Hamlet claims to his
fathers ghost and to Horation that he is only acting crazy.
Anyone that acts to be crazy really is crazy. So this does not
make me change my mind that Hamlet is crazy. There are
many instinces that make you want to believe that he is
acting crazy but if you really think about it he really is crazy.
In this play Hamlet has problems and by all the actions that
he does only poves this theory.
