The task before Hamlet weighs heavily upon him. Whether Shakespeare took these from Belleforest directly or from the hypothetical Ur-Hamlet remains unclear.
It tells the story of Claudius poisoning King Hamlet. Hamlet agrees, and the ghost vanishes.
The first is the anonymous Scandinavian Saga of Hrolf Kraki. When his father's ghost visits the castle, Hamlet's suspicions are confirmed. It should be called the 'Hamlet complex'. Lacan postulated that the human psyche is determined by structures of language and that the linguistic structures of Hamlet shed light on human desire.
In a rage, Hamlet brutally insults his mother for her apparent ignorance of Claudius's villainy, but the ghost enters and reprimands Hamlet for his inaction and harsh words. Fortinbras, who was ostensibly marching towards Poland with his army, arrives at the palace, along with an English ambassador bringing news of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern's deaths.
Possibly written by Thomas Kyd or even William Shakespeare, the Ur-Hamlet would have existed byand would have incorporated a ghost.
