On the way to writing a classic revenge thriller laced with political intrigue, William Shakespeare drafted one of the greatest plays ever written. Thanks to Hamlet’s razor sharp wit, the play is not only unexpectedly funny, but profoundly direct in confronting the essential questions at the core of what it is to be human. In Hamlet’s struggle to make order out of the chaos around him, we see our own lives mirrored.
