“Hamlet’s humour is properly to be termed wit…a mark of his intellectual superiority”
“ Shakespeare’s way of humanising his revenge is to present a Hamlet who is thoughtful, introspective, witty, capable of enduring friendships ,deeply moved by the need for human affection…and philosophically inquisitive”
‘Both Hamlet and the play as a whole are obsessed by the idea of performance.’
‘Of the feigned madness of Hamlet there appears no adequate cause, for he does nothing which he might not have done with the reputation of sanity.’ Disagree.
