    He pretends he is mad. I haven't read the book but got to know it from the movie "Renaissance Man".

    Watch it. It's good.

    Learnt a new simile from that movie - like a rooster with an itch

    I agree with you that Hamlet pretends he is mad, but why does he pretend madness?

    Read the play carefully and then decide what you think is his motive.
