Hamlet is written in blank verse, a kind of poetry which depends on rhythm but not necessarily rhyme. Music is displayed when the players come and present the "play within the play." Shakespeare used poetry and the music of his time in his writing. Hamlet even tells his friends that they are trying to play him like a pipe.
