The rest is silence
One of the best known, most performed, most quoted plays in the English language, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy tells the tale of Hamlet, prince of Denmark, and his efforts to avenge his father’s murder. Although Hamlet is a play of revenge, its greatness lies in the unique and thoughtful nature of the prince, who does not so much pursue his revenge as he is swept to it through the events of the play. His preoccupation with the nature and consequences of man’s actions has led critics to call him “the first modern man.”
