The question of Hamlet's being insane has long been debated, the problem is rather more subtle than critics have so far admitted, for Hamlet's malady, Shakespeare gives it, was of that more frequent intermediate sort which nowadays goes by the name psychoneurosis. A psychoanalytic investigation of Hamlet's curious mind as it relates to the general psychological conditions foreshadowed in the Oedipus legend.
