I have no idea what a "stylistic analysis of triangle" is.  I'm not sure any other editors will know either.  I'll try to answer with some thoughts concerning the second part of your question, which is a little clearer. 

The Oedipus complex issue deals with Hamlet's feelings for his mother.  Are they what one would expect?  Are they natural or unnatural?  Does he love his mother in a way that is different from the usual love a son has for his mother?  Different actors portray the relationship between Hamlet and Gertrude in different ways, demonstrating that some ambiguity probably exists in the way the relationship is written by Shakespeare. 

Concerning feminism, this issue is usually associated with the role of Ophelia.  Does Shakespeare portray her in a realistic or stereotypical way?  How is she victimized by her father and by Hamlet?  Does the role have value in itself or does it have value only in Ophelia's relationships with the men around her. What is the true nature of Hamlet's feeling for Ophelia?

These are some questions that should give you a place to start, and guide you with what I think you are trying to study.
