Review: Once I bothered to read it properly, I liked Hamlet. We did it in class, a few scenes at a time, which really wasn’t very conducive to me enjoying it. About half way through the classes on Hamlet I read the rest of the play as a whole, and once I did that I kind of got it, and realised why it is good.
I’ve also seen it on stage a few times in Scotland (one of them with someone who I’m sure is famous in the role of Hamlet, though I can’t remember who), and I appreciated it more on stage than I did as a book.
