Hamlet by Someone Who Has Never Read It

Hi everyone! I recently felt the urge to read Hamlet after realising I'd got through life and an English degree without ever bothering to look at it. I picked up a copy for 99p but thought I would chronicle my initial thoughts going it.


The other one I forgot to add was 'general Oedipal things'. I feel like I know something about that happening. Also, did any of you ever watch Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen? Lindsay Lohan's assignment at the end where she reads her Hamlet essay aloud (why??) and soliloquises, "was he truly seeing his father's ghost or is he simply mad?" is another one of my frames of reference. That and the Lion King.

I'm sure I'll keep you posted with my progress!

Until next time,
Steph
