I do beseech you, give him leave to go.
Take thy fair hour, Laertes; time be thine,And thy best graces spend it at thy will! Good Hamlet, cast thy nighted colour off,And let thine eye look like a friend on Denmark. Do not for ever with thy vailed lidsSeek for thy noble father in the dust: Thou know'st 'tis common,--all that lives must die,Passing through nature to eternity.
Seems, madam! Nay, it is; I know not seems. For your intentIn going back to school in Wittenberg,It is most retrograde to our desire: And we beseech you bend you to remainHere in the cheer and comfort of our eye,Our chiefest courtier, cousin, and our son. Let not thy mother lose her prayers, Hamlet: I pray thee stay with us; go not to Wittenberg. Why, 'tis a loving and a fair reply: Be as ourself in Denmark.
Come away. O that this too too solid flesh would melt,Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the Everlasting had not fix'dHis canon 'gainst self-slaughter! O God! How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitableSeem to me all the uses of this world!
Fie on't! O fie! That it should come to this!
But two months dead! So excellent a king; that was, to this,Hyperion to a satyr; so loving to my mother,That he might not beteem the winds of heavenVisit her face too roughly.
Heaven and earth! Must I remember? Why, she would hang on himAs if increase of appetite had grownBy what it fed on: It is not, nor it cannot come to good;But break my heart,--for I must hold my tongue! Sir, my good friend; I'll change that name with you: And what make you from Wittenberg, Horatio? I would not hear your enemy say so;Nor shall you do my ear that violence,To make it truster of your own reportAgainst yourself: I know you are no truant.
But what is your affair in Elsinore? We'll teach you to drink deep ere you depart. Thrift, thrift, Horatio! The funeral bak'd meatsDid coldly furnish forth the marriage tables. Would I had met my dearest foe in heavenOr ever I had seen that day, Horatio!

Claudius had murdered his own brother and seized the throne, also marrying his deceased brother's widow. Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play, and is often ranked among the most powerful and influential tragedies in world literature, with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others". The play likely was one of Shakespeare's most popular works during his lifetime, and still ranks among his most performed, topping the performance list of the Royal Shakespeare Company and its predecessors in Stratford-upon-Avon since It has inspired many other writers--from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Charles Dickens to James Joyce and Iris Murdoch--and has been described as "the world's most filmed story after Cinderella".
Shakespeare may also have drawn on an earlier hypothetical Elizabethan play known today as the Ur- Hamlet , though some scholars believe he himself wrote the Ur- Hamlet , later revising it to create the version of Hamlet we now have.
He almost certainly wrote his version of the title role for his fellow actor, Richard Burbage, the leading tragedian of Shakespeare's time.
In the years since its inception, the role has been performed by numerous highly acclaimed actors in each successive century. Three different early versions of the play are extant: Each version includes lines and entire scenes missing from the others. The play's structure and depth of characterisation have inspired much critical scrutiny.
One such example is the centuries-old debate about Hamlet 's hesitation to kill his uncle, which some see as merely a plot device to prolong the action, but which others argue is a dramatisation of the complex philosophical and ethical issues that surround cold-blooded murder, calculated revenge, and thwarted desire.
More recently, psychoanalytic critics have examined Hamlet 's unconscious desires, while feminist critics have re-evaluated and attempted to rehabilitate the often maligned characters of Ophelia and Gertrude.
