Story Snippet, No. 12

“In my personal opinion, the greatest theatrical work ever written, hands down, is ‘Hamlet.’ It’s absolutely phenomenal. It was the very first play where anybody had exposed so deeply the emotional condition of a person struggling and not even sure why they’re struggling.

“No other play before that had ever done that, including works of fiction, of history – they told the story, or they unfolded the story.  (Writer and literary critic) Harold Bloom described it this way: ‘With ‘Hamlet,’ Shakespeare ‘invented the human.'”
