From its premiere 400 years ago, Hamlet has remained Shakespeare’s best-known, most-imitated, and most-analyzed play. Though there are themes of death and revenge throughout the play, Harold Bloom, perhaps the most respected Shakespeare scholar of his time, said “The play’s subject is neither mourning for the dead nor revenge on the living. All that matters is Hamlet’s consciousness of his own consciousness, infinite, unlimited, and at war with itself.”
