    I Was Obsessed With Hamlet.

    To Be...

    I am very passionate about this play.  I studied it and it was the first play I seen performed at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.  There is such beauty in the language and there is also so many phrases we now use as considered advice. Do not, as some ungracious pastors...

    One of My Favorite Works of Art

    If not my absolute favorite. I couldn't tell you how many times I've read it, and although I already know what happens, it's a comfort to read those beautiful, familiar words. There is so much depth in the story, and as per usual of Shakespeare, so many layers to it...

    Hamlet Relocates Reality...
