Overview: Considered one of William Shakespeare’s greatest works. This is the story of a king who attempts to avenge his father’s murder.
What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room about Hamlet:
Chris: “To read or not to read; that is not even close to the question. The greatest play in English, it is a tale of revenge and redemption that speaks for us all. I have read this many times; each time it speaks to me in a different way.”
Ethan: “I know most people can quote the famous, “to be or not to be” or “there are more things on heaven and earth…” lines from Shakespeare’s masterpiece. However, I believe the entire play deserves such attention, and after reading it, it’s easy to see why the world knows those lines.”
Karen: “Hamlet is an interesting mix of extreme family drama, murder, tragedy, thrones and revenge. While the revenge is eventually exacted, it is not precisely the way that was intended.”
