Shakespeare started working on this in the early 1600s. Denmark during the late middle ages. What makes it interesting is the climax. The climax of Hamlet is a subject of debate. Some say it occurs when Hamlet kills Claudius, others when Hamlet hesitates to kill Claudius while Claudius is praying. A very interesting book it seems and by the greatest american author of all time.
