Hamlet Acts 3-5

I had forgotten what a fabulous play this was. I can't even begin to verbalize the vast amount of human emotion and "everyman-ness" of this work. I think everyone gets a little crazy and dreams or imagines acting upon our crazy thoughts. No, I would never go seek my revenge on an enemy and kill them, but I believe everyone reaches a point where they act a little cracked.

I think Hamlet is such a classic tale because there is a character or character trait that everyone can relate to. While one may share Ophelia's preoccupation with love, others may sympathize with Hamlet's tormented mind. I probably relate to Gertrude the most. She seems like a woman trying to do her best and make appropriate decisions, but fate seems to be against her.

Who would everyone else relate to?

Yorick the skull, anyone? ;)

How very morbid...I guess it fits into the Halloween theme.
