The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, or simply Hamlet, is a tragedy by the English playwright William Shakespeare, first published in 1603. At 30,557 words, it is Shakespeare's longest play.

The play is set in Denmark and tells the story of Prince Hamlet and his revenge on his uncle, Claudius, who murdered Hamlet's father in order to seize the throne and marry Hamlet's mother. The ghost of the king urges his son to take revenge on his murderer.

The play vividly portrays both true love and betrayal, as well as madness and physical violence, and the transformation of deep grief into unbridled rage. It also explores themes of incest and moral corruption.

The play has been adapted into many films and television shows over the years. Many of the play's famous lines are still frequently quoted today.

"FRANCISCO at his post. Enter to him BERNARDO
BERNARDO: Who's there?
FRANCISCO: Nay, answer me: stand, and unfold yourself.
BERNARDO: Long live the king!"
