Tragedy of Revenge: The tragedy of the play revolves around Hamlet’s desire for revenge against his uncle Claudius for the murder of his father, King Hamlet. This revenge is a central theme of the play and drives the plot forward. Appearance Versus Reality: Many of the characters in Hamlet put on a false face in order to mask their true intentions. The Ghost: The ghost of King Hamlet, who appears in Act 1, serves as a catalyst for the events of the play. It is his demand for revenge that sets Hamlet on his course of action.
