~William Shakespeare, Hamlet
For the month of November, I’d like to give thanks to some of my favorite books. Key word being some because unfortunately there isn’t enough days to honor all the books I love. So I’ve issued myself the challenge to do thirty days of thanks for books… and today I am thankful for…
Day 10 – Hamlet by Shakespeare
Aside from Romeo and Juliet and Julius Caesar, we never read much of Shakespeare in school. So I was one of those geeks who actually read his works on my own time. All because I had read a little snippet of a soliloquy that goes something like this… To be or not to be… and I became intrigued. For that I am thankful. If you’re intrigued, here’s the lowdown… It’s a tale of revenge for a murder in the royal family that drives young Hamlet into the claws of madness. Oh and if you don’t like that cryptic-English-give-me-a-translator way of speaking, the movie version with Kenneth Branagh isn’t too shabby either.
