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.

If you’ve got a skull t-shirt or skull tights or some type of skull patch on your backpack, you could be doing advertising for Shakespeare’s Hamlet. That’s because the most prominent symbol in this play is the symbol of the skull. Check out this Recap for more on what Shakespeare was doing with that.
