7: Theme 2

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 your father had been murdered—the way Hamlet’s was—you’d probably spend a lot of time thinking about death. And if there were people plotting to kill you—the way Hamlet’s stepfather is—you’d also probably spend a lot of time wondering about what happens in the great hereafter. That’s why one of Shakespeare’s themes in Hamlet is the mystery of death. Does Hamlet solve the mystery? Watch and learn.
