Hamlet is filled with ShakespeareÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s elaborate play on ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œseeming,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â i.e. how things seem to be and what is the reality behind the complex screen of appearances. Hamlet himself is the great dissembler, along with Claudius. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œSeemingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â is at issue in HamletÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s relationships with Ophelia, with Rosenkranz and Guildenstern, even with his own mother, Gertrude: What is appearance and what is reality in these relationships? The one exception is Laertes. How, in his case, are the appearances completely ruptured at the end?
