    Hamlet, Shakespeare's play, should it be underlined or put between inverted commas?

    Hamlet

    'Hamlet"

    It would be better to write: Shakespeare's play, Hamlet.

    Thank you Daruma
    I agree with you. It is a mistake.

    I know that Hamlet can be italicized Hamlet; however, what it should be in hand writing?

    Sash,

    Thanks for the response.
    My answer wouldn't be the only one. Let's wait for someone else to respond to you.
    In handwriting, I'd write: Shakespeare's play, "Hamlet".
