Using extensive evidence from the text and scholarly criticism, it can be efficiently argued that Hamlet does indeed maintain his sanity throughout the entirety of the play. It is impossibly difficult to establish a complete character analysis of Hamlet. There is more to him than the other characters in the play, and even the highest academics, have managed to determine. Hamlet hides much of himself, often acting on his own without input from others and tending to prefer his own company versus that of others. It can even been argued that there are times where Hamlet does not even understand himself.
