H. R. Greenberg writes, "For a research project, need an article, book,
essay, et cetera, that would summarize pithily the leading theoretical
essays about Hamlet's character, motivation, psychology, et cetera."

Try The Heart of Hamlet: The Play Shakespeare Wrote, Crowell, NY, 1960,
by Bernard Grebanier, with a complete chapter answering the critical
theories, and interspersed through the book all the rest you seek.

Read Grebanier.

"need an article, book, essay, et cetera, that would summarize pithily
the leading theoretical essays about Hamlet's character, motivation,
psychology, et cetera. From the Bard's death onward"

The Macmillan "Casebook" series does this sort of thing quite well.

The volume on Hamlet is edited by John Jump.

Although it does not cover the newest theories, the following is a good
starting place: Weitz, Morris. "Hamlet and the Philosophy of Literary
Criticism." Chicago: U of Chicago P, 1964.

Try Morris Weitz on Hamlet, as I remember an excellent book, title
forgotten.
