About Hamlet

Arguably the most famous of Shakespeare plays, this tragedy is also the longest of all of the plays by some margin and therefore requires a lot of talent on behalf of the performers of the lead roles simply to learn all their lines nevermind perform them.

The play is from 1600 and it has a full title of the Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.

Author / Creator: William Shakespeare

Hamlet Quotations

And can you by no drift of circumstance
Get from him why he puts on this confusion,
Grating so harshly all his days of quiet With turbulent and dangerous lunacy?

Said by: Claudius
Reference information: Act III Scene I

Nor do we find him forward to be sounded,
But with a crafty madness keeps aloof
When we would bring him on to some confession
Of his true state.

Said by: Guildenstern
Reference information: Act III Scene I

To be, or not to be- that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them. To die- to sleep-
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die- to sleep.

Said by: Hamlet
Reference information: Act III Scene I

There is a willow grows aslant a brook,
That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream.
There with fantastic garlands did she come
Of crowflowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples,
That liberal shepherds give a grosser name,
But our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them.
There on the pendant boughs her coronet weeds
Clamb'ring to hang, an envious sliver broke,
When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook

Said by: Gertrude
Reference information: Act IV Scene VII
