Hamletian?  I'm not so certain that I care for this adjective.  Might we
consider some others?

Hamletesque?  Artful

Hamletician?  Paternal.

Hamletarian?  With authority

Hamletastic?  Super!

Hamletiffic?  A close cousin to the above.

Hamlescent?  Luminous and shiny--above all, enlightening.

Hamleticious?  Flavor of the millennium.

Hamletenacious?  Yes, it's long, but we will get through it!

Hamlovian?  Of course it's the greatest play ever written.  Don't be

Now, this is serious stuff, not to be taken lightly.  Consider a grain
of salt . . . and your favorite, refreshing beverage.

Cheers, bob
