- The surface of ceremonies and rituals celebrating the coronation of King Claudius and his marriage to Hamlet's mother leaves the young prince indifferent. Hamlet's melancholic nature finds no relief from his brooding, not even in his courtship of Ophelia. However, a nocturnal visit from his father's ghost changes everything.
