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.

Leave it to Shakespeare to write a play about ears. They’re everywhere in Hamlet. Hamlet’s father is killed when Claudius pours poison in his ears. (Disgusting.) And the other characters in Hamlet can’t stop talking about ears (or hearing) either. (Weird.) But listen up, because Shakespeare has a point to make. You’ll find out what it is when you watch this Recap.
