Hamlet’s Soliloquy (1948-2009)
William Shakespeare, Hamlet.
This is how Hamlet first speaks to Claudius who is now both his uncle and step father.
"Kind" here can be interpreted in two different ways. It could be taken at face value since Hamlet knows that Claudius killed his father. It can also be understood as "natural" since it is in Shakespeare’s habit to use "kind" in that sense. It is, of course, unnatural during the Elizabethan era at least for a man to kill his brother and marry his sister-in-law.

For some reason, I decided to watch the 2012 BBC The Hollow Crown miniseries recently. Each of the four episodes is one of the following of Shakespeare’s works: Richard II, Henry IV Part 1 and Part 2, and Henry V. I really don’t know why I watched it (lies! Tom Hiddleston is the reason why. He makes a very good Prince Hal and Henry V) but I enjoyed it. This is actually the first time I ever willingly watched or read anything related to Shakespeare.
Anyway, while I really enjoyed watching the plays, spending over an hour looking for the links wasn’t as fun. So, if anyone else is interested in watching them, I’ve posted some links for them that I know work below.
Note: Just a suggestion but the Putlocker and Sockshare links work the best.
Let me know if any of the links don’t work and I’ll find the right one!
Do you ever just get something and think: This. This is it. This is my new favourite thing.
