The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Hamlet - William Shakespeare - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the play Hamlet:

Murder, mayhem, and madness after the ghost of a king tasks his son with revenge.

My favorite William Shakespeare quote from the play:

"If we are true to ourselves, we can not be false to anyone."

Questions to ponder while reading Hamlet?

How do your family dynamics compare to that of Royalty?

Could hauntings and insanity be one and the same?

My thoughts about Hamlet:

The imagery, the graveyard, the skull, the prose.

Royal family dynamics at its finest.

Family secrets are haunting.
