The play, Hamlet, written by William Shakespeare, presents a story about a young prince whose view of love changes due to the actions of both his mother and the woman he loved. Hamlet 's view of romantic love being a very important part of human relationship changes and is shown throughout the play. Due to the marriage between Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude, and his uncle, now known as King Claudius, has disgusted Hamlet and has permanently changed his opinion on how much romantic love matters in life. Hamlet, is now consumed by the outrageousness of his mother 's love for his uncle, and has denied ever loving Ophelia, even though he admitted to loving her at one point. Despite the fact, Hamlet is justified to feel disgust towards love due to the actions of her mother and uncle, and as well as Ophelia. Hamlet is the son of the late King Hamlet, who died two months prior to the beginning of the play. After the death of King Hamlet, his brother, claudius, becomes king, and marries King Hamlet 's widow, Gertrude(Queen of Denmark). Young Hamlet fears that his uncle killed his own brother to become King of Denmark, greatly angering hamlet. Two officers, Bernardo and Marcellus, summon Hamlet’s friend Horatio, and later Hamlet himself to see the late King Hamlet’s ghost appear at midnight. The ghost of King Hamlet tells young Hamlet that Claudius has indeed killed him by pouring poison into his ear. Hamlet, now even more enraged, plots the revenge of his father 's death.
