Ten Brick: "Hamlet remains to be a secret, but invincibly attractive secret owing to our consciousness, that it is not artificial thought up, but a secret having the source in nature". Dawn: "But Shakespeare has created a secret which has remained an element forever stimulating it and never quite understood. Therefore it is impossible to assume that any idea or the magic phrase might resolve the difficulties represented by a drama or illuminate the dark in it. " A. Vygotsky: " It is very easy to show, that the riddle is drawn in the tragedy, that the tragedy is deliberately constructed as a riddle, that it should be comprehended and understood as a riddle which is not giving in to logic interpretation".

Zhykovsky: " Shakespeare's masterpiece seems a monster to me. I do not understand its sense". L. Tolstoy: " There is no opportunity to find any explanation to acts and speeches of Hamlet". Walter went further by declaring “ Hamlet” in the preface of one of his tragedies to be a "Delirium of the chronic alcoholic". Similar statements wander from one research to another, in order to sing in unison with the colleagues: "Darkly, confusing, unclear, but how philosophically deep".

And the easiest way to explain Hamlet’ s behavior was to say that he was “ a lunatic” , “ a chronic alcoholic» and so on. However, some critics such as Taylor, Damrosch looked deeper in the psychological world of Hamlet, so did I after reading the play several times. I would like to share my thoughts and give a thorough analysis of Hamlet’ s soul. If one saw a phantom in the form of his dead father, he would hardly believe it.

This is one of the most difficult problems Hamlet faced. This ghost told him that it was King Hamlet Hamlet’ s father. He told Hamlet some dreadful information that he was killed by his brother and is living in hell until Hamlet would revenge his father’ s death. Hamlet has to get to know if he can believe that information, and if so, the question is how to kill and where. “ Rest, rest perturbed spirit. ” The Phantom demands revenge, there are some natural questions occurring.
