Hamlet: Genre of play

Hamlet is a revenge tragedy which contains certain elements, such as: a play within a play, mad scenes, a vengeful ghost, one or several gory scenes, and most importantly a central character who has a serious grievance against a formidable opponent. This character takes matter in his own hands, after experiencing an event that requires revenge upon another character. Hamlet is the only protagonist in any Elizabethan revenge play who can be considered a hero, aware of the moral implications involved in exacting his revenge.
