William Shakespeare's Hamlet follows the young prince home to Denmark to attend his father's funeral, where Hamlet is shocked to find his mother already remarried to his Uncle Claudius. And Hamlet is even more surprised when his father's ghost appears and declares that he was murdered. Exact dates are unknown, but scholars agree that Shakespeare published Hamlet between 1601 and 1603. Many believe that Hamlet is the best of Shakespeare's work, and the perfect play.
