How to use Hamlet in a sentence?

  1. Northrop Frye:

    A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature. He cannot distinguish fiction from fact, and belongs in the same category as the people who send checks to radio stations for the relief of suffering heroines in soap operas.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Modern life is full of challenges, such as daily demands, deadlines, hassles and frustrations. Whenever the threat of any challenge outweighs one's perception of her/his ability to manage that threat, it can be an onset of Stress. I find it interesting that William Shakespear had offered a perfect strategy to manage the Stress - in his famous play "Hamlet". In this play, Hamlet makes a powerful statement: "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." In this one sentence, Shakespear teaches us that if we change our thoughts about a potentially threatening situation, we should be able to not only cope with the stress, but also lower our stress significantly. By now it's a well-established fact in Psychology that thinking positively, and transforming the threat into a potntial opportunity, empowers us to protect ourselves from the harmful side-effects of Stress.....and William Shakespear knew this fact more than 400 years ago. That's amazing!

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    La vie moderne est pleine de défis, tels que les exigences quotidiennes, les délais, les tracas et frustrations. Chaque fois que la menace de contestation emporte sur la perception qu'on a de son / sa capacité à gérer cette menace, il peut être un début de stress. Je trouve intéressant que William Shakespeare avait offert une stratégie parfaite pour gérer le stress - dans sa célèbre pièce "Hamlet". Dans ce jeu, Hamlet fait une déclaration puissante: "il n'y a rien soit bon ou mauvais, mais la pensée qui le rend si." Dans cette phrase, Shakespear nous enseigne que si nous changeons nos pensées sur une situation potentiellement dangereuse, nous devrions être en mesure de faire face non seulement avec le stress, mais aussi de réduire notre stress de façon significative. Maintenant c'est un fait bien établi en psychologie que la pensée positive, et transformer la menace en une opportunité potntial, nous permet de nous protéger contre les effets secondaires néfastes du stress ..... et William Shakespeare savait ce fait plus de 400 il ya des années. C'est incroyable!

  4. Jerzy Limon:

    When I heard that they produced 'Hamlet', I said to myself, 'Wow, we must have it'.

  5. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    If you haven’t read Shakespeare’s Hamlet yet, it means that you haven’t reached the summit of the literature yet!
