Review #178

Since everyone and their mom has read Hamlet, this isn’t a typical review, but a list of possible discussion questions below.

Title– Hamlet

Author– William Shakespeare

Rating– 5/5


The ghost of the King of Denmark tells his son Hamlet to avenge his murder by killing the new king, Hamlet’s uncle. Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death, and seeks revenge. His uncle, fearing for his life, also devises plots to kill Hamlet.

Quote– “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below; Words without thoughts never to heaven go.”

Discussion Questions:

Have you ever felt like someone was plotting against you? How so?

Do you perceive suicide as a sin? Why or why not?

What makes you feel most guilty in life?

Have you ever contemplated revenge, and if so, why?

Do you believe in the five steps of grief and have you ever experienced them?

Do you believe in other spirits and have you ever seen a ghost?

Would you admit a crime you committed or hide/lie?

Have you ever seen a professional live play and which one?
