Prince Hamlet, New favorite Shakespeare character

My English class has just recently gone further into the Shakespeare novel, “Hamlet”. I had always thought those “classic” novels tend to be boring and tend to have confusing characters, so when we started reading “Hamlet” in class I already predicted how I would feel…I was proven wrong today. True it was a bit boring at first, but now that we have gotten to the meat of the novel I must say I was surprised with how Prince Hamlet was…for the better of course.

First off, I love how Prince Hamlet isn’t portrayed as one of those “always be good” type of characters. This is shown by how he acts towards Ophelia after she breaks up with him, like a jerk. But in a way, Shakespeare makes Prince Hamlet easier to relate to and humanizes him. Add the fact Prince Hamlet is willing to get revenge and make the King suffer for killing his father makes him seem much more realistic and dark. For those reasons, Prince Hamlet will be one of my most favorite characters in Shakespeare’s novels.
