2. Summary: Hamlet

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.

We know that Hamlet is a tragedy—Shakespeare said so in the title. And we know that it’s a play about revenge—Hamlet revolves around the Prince’s desire to get back at Claudius for what Claudius did to his father. But there’s another word that describes Shakespeare’s play, too. It’s the word mystery. Intrigued? Check out the video for more clues.
