Is Hamlet Mad?
It depends entirely on the production and context.
Different productions of Shakespeare often emphasise different aspects of characters in order to create a unique dramatic experience and encourage audiences to look at old stories in new and refreshing ways.
The cultural and political understanding brought to the play by an audience has a large influence on whether or not they would consider Hamlet mad.
Hamlet should be interpreted based on what is written in the original text.
