    2. I don t have any original insights to share from this most recent of god knows how many readings, but this time through I was really struck by 1 what a damn fine piece of stagecraft this is, from the suspenseful, moody opening on the castle battlements to the solemn dead march carrying the prince offstage, and 2 how Shakespeare seems to want Hamlet s personality particularly the wellspring of his actions and lack of action to remain an enigma, and that he achieves this by infusing the character [...]

    4. Here be spoilers This could all have been avoided if Hamlet and his posse had sought the counsel of Sassy Gay Friend.Although Hamlet is one of the most important pieces of literature on the planet, many find it hard to understand Basically this is what happens.Hamlet is depressed and feeling emo af He s got 99 problems and his dysfunctional family is the biggest one The prince of Denmark is not a happy camper He wants to kill his uncle aka the king to avenge his father Not a good idea.I mean, I [...]

    5. Madness in great ones must not unwatch d go I don t know what to say about Hamlet I could go on about how it is a story of madness and revenge I could talk about the bonds of family loyalty, the sacrifices of love, the breaches of trust and their deleterious effects on the psyche But this is old news Hamlet has been around for over four hundred years What could I possibly say that hasn t already been said When my wife saw I was reading Shakespeare, her snippy comment went something like, What ar [...]

    6. Shakespeare is an adept poet and master of the language He layers on jokes, puns, and references everywhere He has a massive output of work, and a number of different plots When we compare him to other authors, it is difficult to find anyone who stacks up but then, we re often comparing him to the wrong people.Shakespeare didn t write books or pamphlets or epics, he wrote plays short pieces of drama that were meant to be fast paced and exciting That they are mainly experienced today as bound boo [...]

    7. It is only when I read and compare across languages that I realise what a hard and thankless job translation is, especially older texts and so when there s a significant cultural distance between languages Shakespeare s diction is so profoundly poetic and idiomatic that it might be thought untranslatable, even when it is rendered into modern English idiom, it loses its antique beauty when tampered with, like those monuments reconstructed from history that look like originals but actually are no [...]

    9. All that is amiable and excellent in nature is combined in Hamlet, with the exception of one quality He is a man living in meditation, called upon to act by every motive human and divine, but the great object of his life is defeated by continually resolving to do, yet doing nothing but resolve Lecture XII, STC.As much as I admire Coleridge and with the boldness of having read Hamlet only once and therefore being aware I haven t even managed to scratch the surface of the Paragon of Tragedies, I d [...]

    10. Updated review February 2017 This is my third time reading Hamlet and, like a fine wine you know the rest I read the same copy I ve had lying around for years with one page of notes on the left and the play on the right This time I was able to read most of the play without notes which was pretty awesome Just had to glance over to figure out what some of the words meant l, but I actually got the story this time It s taken me three tries with a book that helps me cheat, but boy oh boy I finally go [...]

    12. Isn t it always a delight to delve into one of Shakespeare s world famous plays Like many others, I had been forced to read Shakespeare in school Romeo Juliet, as in my case , and unfamiliar with all the important literary classics as I was back then, I had a lot of troubles with the rather outmoded language After finally finishing that play, not only was I relieved to have conquered it successfully, no, it had also raised my interest for other Shakespearian plays Macbeth, Julius Caesar, A Midsu [...]

    13. To be or not to be, that is not my favorite line My favorite is Alas, poor Yorick I knew him, Horatio a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy he hath borne me on his back a thousand times It s that recollection of innocent days that gets me every time, because you know Hamlet is being swept up in a vortex of innocence lost STUPID ADULTS They screw up everything I grew up in a truly idyllic setting As childhoods go, mine was a joy But then you grow up and you wake up to reality.My intr [...]

    14. The first time I read this book I was in highschool It was an 80 page book The story was so short and simple, so I wondered Why so many people say this is such a complex play book A couple of years later, I bought a special edition of 592 pages Too much No Why not Because the play was written in Shakespearean English, and every single word that was not in standard English was explained at the bottom of the page, it explained the context, the uses you can have from that word.Ok, so I read that ve [...]

    15. Well, I m an English literature student and I absolutely love Shakespeare s plays This is nothing unusual or exciting Most English student s live for Shakespeare So far I ve enjoyed reading, and studying, everything of his that s popped up on the reading list until this came along My reaction surprised me most of all, I never expected to find something of Shakespeare s that I not only dislike, but also detest This is also one of his most revered plays, and it s also considered one of his greates [...]

    16. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Hamlet, a tragedy published in 1600 by William Shakespeare Buckle your seat belts, as I have a 38 page review to share Just Kidding Well, I do have a lengthy review I could include from a previous course on Shakespeare, but I will not do so here chance are you ve already read the play or seen some film adaption, perhaps even a staged version I ve seen a bunch of them and read the place 4 times once in high school, twice in college and once just for pleasure Here s [...]

    17. Here s the thing about Hamlet if you see it and you hate it, you saw a terrible Hamlet I don t care if it s given critical acclaim fuck off, Kenneth Branagh Hamlet is supposed to be compelling, and if you didn t find the character compelling, that actor didn t do their job You need a Hamlet who knows the character, not a Hamlet who wants to do grace to the character or some shit Here s the thing I used to hate this play Not lowkey hate, I fucking despised it I thought it was boring and overrated [...]

    18. I ve always meant to talk to my mate George about Hamlet and I guess this is as good an opportunity to do so as any.There are different things I would say to different people about Hamlet and as this is the near perfect play I guess there ought to be many and various things one could say about it The oddest thing about Hamlet is that people always tend to say the same thing they always say, Oh yes, Hamlet, the man who hesitates I ve said it before and I ll say it again, I don t believe in capita [...]

    19. To be or not to be that is the question Is this the most famous line in Shakespeare It is certainly a contender The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is Shakespeare s longest and most ambitious play, taking over four hours to perform in its entirety Written at some point between 1599 and 1602, it has such an extensive vocabulary and expressive range, that Shakespeare was emotionally drained afterwards, and was incapable of writing anything for two years It was not only one of Shakespeare s mo [...]

    20. What s the question To be, or not to be that is the question Shakespeare s most famous play Maybe And that quote may be his most recognizable, certainly one of the most memorable The tragedy of the Danish prince, his revenge, the introspection and self doubt that shaped his actions, and the tragic events described in some of Shakespeare s most provocative language is mesmerizing This above all to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to an [...]

    23. The singular and peculiar life is boundWith all the strength and armour of the mindTo keep itself from noyance but much That spirit upon whose weal depends and restsThe lives of many The cease of majestyDies not alone, but like a gulf doth drawWhat s near it with it It is a massy wheelFixed on the summit of the highest mount,To whose huge spokes ten thousand lesser thingsAre mortised and adjoined, which when it fallsEach small annexment, petty consequence,Attends the boist rous ruin.There is a m [...]
