silly Hamlet is an existentialist a couple hundred years before existentialism is even invented.

"To be or not to be" is actually very straightforward; it's a suicidal thought.

To live, or die? That is a heavy question, isn't it?

Many have claimed that Shakespeare wrote all of his works. Others have said that Francis Bacon wrote all of his works, and Shakespeare merely took credit.

This, my friends, is the middle ground.
