1: Introduction

Hamlet

William Shakespeare, 1603
Famous for: Some of the most memorable lines in English literature—“To be, or not to be: that is the question”—and a series of truly unfortunate events that make this play a tragedy to end all tragedies.

“To be, or not to be: that is the question,” says Hamlet in Act III of Hamlet. But what he should have said was, “To be mad, or not to be mad: that is the question.” Because it certainly is the question—the question of Shakespeare’s whole play. Is Hamlet mad or not? That’s what Ophelia would like to know, too.
