    Hamlet

    Hamlet was not insane at all; he was only pretending to be. My definition of insanity is when you don’t know what you are talking about, you can’t understand what is going on, you do something outrageous for no particular reason, or you do strange things constantly without even noticing it. Hamlet said that he himself was only mad sometimes. He tought things through before acting on them. Whatever Hamlet did he did it
