A Hamlet Test. More than expected.

  • Have you ever noticed how, in Shakespear's plays, when people say they have seen a ghost, they usually did? Were people more reliable in those days? Were ghosts?
  • Consider the effect on Ophelia's future if she had known how to swim.
  • Which is the most horrible line in the play? Not counting; of course, "O, horrible! O, horrible! Most horrible!" (I,v,80)
  • Ultimately, did Polonius suffer from constipation or not? (A medical certificate is not required to answer but a note from home would help.)
Find all the questions you wanted to ask and all the answers you wanted to shock you on the Hamlet Test.
