    I Was Obsessed With Hamlet.

    ~~~~~~~~~~ I went through a phase of being obsessed with the play "Hamlet", for several months. Often, I was reading the script in the daytime, watching DVDs of it in the evening, and dreaming about it at night. It effected me very deeply, as it seems to say so much about...

    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...
