HAMLET is my favorite Shakespeare play, along with Romeo and Juliet, Othello, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
I am obsessed, creatively and emotionally, with the character of Ophelia, the poetic mind of Hamlet, the mystery of the Ghost, and that fact that HAMLET does not have a true villain. Unlike Iago from Othello, even the worst character in the play acts out of love for one specific person. It’s a beautiful story.
My favorite film version is the 2000 film with Ethan Hawke as Prince Hamlet.
Taken in THE RAVEN CAFE, Michigan.
