    1. William Shakespeare Sasha Newborn

      William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

    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 cha [...]

    5. 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 me [...]

    6. “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 somet [...]

    7. 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 bou [...]

    8. 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 more 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 a [...]

    10. “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 Trage [...]

    11. 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 finall [...]

    12. Jesus Christ what a year no way could this get worse now they're hacking away at each other with their swords and I'm supposed to look interested oh well done Hamlet despite everything he's still my son that was a lovely feint pretty worried about Laertes though he looks so crazy first his dad and then his sister wish I could do something to help oh come on who am I kidding it's Hamlet I'm worried about of course God what am I going to do that poor kid is totally fucked and he thinks it's all my [...]

    13. یه اعتراف می خوام بکنم:من قبلاً از بین کارهای شکسپیر، هملت رو اصلاً دوست نداشتم. عاشق اتللو و مکبث بودم، ولی از هملت خوشم نمی اومد اصلاً و نمی دونستم چرا معروف ترین اثر شکسپیره.همه ى اين ها، تا وقتى شنيدم "بنديكت كمبربچ" نقش هملت رو بازى كرده. قبلاً اجراى سينمايى "مل گيبسون" رو دي [...]

    14. 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 [...]

    15. "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 r [...]

    16. 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 [...]

    17. 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 re [...]

    18. 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). H [...]

    19. 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 an [...]

    20. «پس ادراك از ما يك مشت ترسو مى سازد.»این جمله ایست که هملت در پايان تك گويى معروفش "بودن يا نبودن" می گوید؛ وقتى به خودكشى فكر مى كند، و اين كه آگاهى از احتمال مجازات پس از مرگ مردم را در خودكشى به ترديد مى اندازد، او را به این نتیجه می کشاند که «عزم در سایۀ اندیشه بیمارگونه می نما [...]

    21. 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 d [...]

    22. "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 Shakespear [...]

    24. 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 [...]

    25. “Madness in great ones must not unwatched go.” ― William Shakespeare, HamletStill one of my favorite Shakepeare plays. I've probably read it 3-5 times and probably watched just as many film productions: 1996 - Kenneth Branagh; 1990 - Mel Gibson; 1948 - Laurence Olivier; 2000 - Ethan Hawke; 1990 - Kevin Kline. I love it. Every read gives me a chance to channel something else. This is also my first exposure to the play since visiting Hamlet's castle in Denmark last summer (2016) on the 400th [...]

    27. The singular and peculiar life is boundWith all the strength and armour of the mindTo keep itself from noyance; but much moreThat 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 [...]
