Words, words, words

I‘ve been in such a Shakespeare phase lately, and so I‘m watching the 2009 RSC production of Hamlet with Patrick Stewart as Claudius and David Tennant as Hamlet.

And Tennant‘s usual boneless, insane delivery is never as amusing as this scene

Clare-Dragonfly How are you watching this? Is it streaming somewhere? I‘d love to see it. 2w
Mandigolightly @Clare-Dragonfly Oh, on DVD. I got it from the library. But I think you can rent it on Prime. You should definitely watch it. It‘s a great take 2w
Clare-Dragonfly Thank you! I don‘t have a way to play DVDs but my parents have Prime 😄 2w

As soon as I saw the #geturfreakon prompt I thought of my favourite actress - here are 5 of Helena Bonham Carter's films in which she is crazy! #lilithjuly @Cinfhen @KarenUK

catiewithac She‘s my favorite actress, too! I‘ve loved her since A Room With A View 💜 2mo
TrishB When they make a film of me I definitely want her playing me 😂😂 awesome. 2mo
Caroline2 She used to be my favourite but then I read that she had an affair with Kenneth Branagh when he was married to Emma Thompson. Apparently Emma found out the same way as in Love Actually by finding a bracelet. 😢 it‘s kinda put me off Helena a bit. 😔 2mo
KarenUK Love this collage 👍💕 2mo
Slajaunie She makes a good crazy. 2mo

Why did I choose to read this book?
I chose to read this book because I love Hamlet/Shakespeare even named my cat after Ophelia.

Did I like it? Definitely, I reccomend

What is one similar book I think you'd like if you also love this book? Other Shakespeare books or the retelling of it Ophelia by Lisa M Klein

Questions for you:
1. Have you read this book?
2. Who's your favorite character?
3. What's your favorite Shakespearean work?

i-am-papercrane I had to read this play for high school, and I liked the play but not the way it was taught. Ophelia is by far my favorite character, mostly because of the flower scene. I had to research all that for a paper. My other favorite Shakespeare play has to be A Midsummer Night‘s Dream or The Taming of the Shrew. 2mo
Blueberry Yes, Laertes because I played him in the last act (swordfighting!), and probably The Taming of the Shrew or A Midsummer Night's Dream. 2mo
Craigson hey Courtney i have not read the book. it will be nice if you can tell me about the book 2mo
GreatBookStudy Haven't read it, yet, but my kids and I are going to read it this school year. A little intimidated by the size, but...we're going to give it a go. 2mo

I read Hamlet years ago for an undergrad class - and read it again today for a PhD class! While not my favorite play by Shakespeare (that would be Othello!), it is certainly a classic. I enjoy Shakespeare‘s style a lot. His characters are witty and, when the story calls for it, deeply tragic.

"He was a man, take him for all in all; I shall not look upon his like again."

I always seem to turn to Shakespeare at times like these. On December 17, 2018, the man in this picture, my husband, my heart, my soul, took his last breath. My daughter and I are broken, and I think 3 months later still in shock.

An' flights of angels sing the to thy rest.

One last post about Hamlet: we saw the production by Orlando Shakes last evening. Amazing! Reading Shakespeare is not nearly as satisfying as seeing it performed. This is a beautiful production; if you‘re in the Orlando area and have an opportunity to see it, do it. Photo from Orlando Shakes FB page.

I really enjoyed reading this play ahead of seeing a performance at Orlando Shakes on Friday. I did not care for this Digireads edition, however. The annotations were more like excerpts from a PhD dissertation. Not very helpful. I much prefer the Folger Library editions, but couldn‘t locate one this time. Still, it was great to finally read this, and I‘m really looking forward to Friday.

On the last day of my prednisone regimen for the sinus infection-and I feel SO much better-I feel like I can concentrate well enough to get back to Hamlet.

Change of plans for today. We were planning an early Valentines celebration with lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, outdoors on the water. But the weather is rainy, cold, and damp. We‘ll still go out for lunch, but to one of our local favorites. In the meantime, it‘s another mug of tea and more Hamlet.

We went to the park where we walked on Monday to see our grandson‘s first soccer match. I thought we‘d walk one of the trails afterward, but we ended up as assistant referees for two more matches! Don‘t worry, I‘ve been a certified soccer ref for 25 years, even though I hadn‘t done it in quite a while. So I didn‘t walk but I did run and had lots of fun. #LitsyWalkers

Starting this today. It‘s hard to believe, but I‘ve never read Hamlet. Since we‘re going to see It next month, I figured it was time. I always think attending a Shakespeare play is better when you‘ve read it beforehand.

Susanita I‘d never read it either, and my college boyfriend was horrified. So I read it to appease him and never thought about it again. 😆 7mo

To give them seals never, my soul, consent!”

Hamlet is one of my three favorite books; I‘ve read it at least once a year for all my adult life. Reading it recently with a pal & colleague in our Reading Group of Two was an exceptionally rewarding experience, savoring the poetry, dynamic characters, & haunting themes. We also explored the “good” & “bad” Quarto versions as well as looking at my photo-facsimile of the First Folio. Language has seldom been crafted with more beauty & power.

dory.sheade Polonius talks wayyyy too much in the play lol 9mo
dory.sheade I mean he gives good advice but his verboseness as well as his hamartia are not the best 9mo
LiterarySloth @dory.sheade haha true. But there‘s usually one character like that with Shakespeare 9mo

dory.sheade @LiterarySloth true. But also what he does to Ophelia just pushes me over the edge a bit. No one deserves to go through what she did. 9mo
dory.sheade And I think verboseness is fine. It's just I feel he's unnecessarily verbose. Like he'll take lines on lines to answer/say something that could've been said in one line 9mo
LiterarySloth There were a lot of characters who did wrong. This was definitely one of his more messed up plays. I‘ve had to read it for two or three English classes. 9mo

Bonus movie recommendation:

The year before Kenneth Branagh directed his lavish 4-hour film adaptation of Hamlet, he wrote and directed a goofy black-and-white little indie comedy about... directing a production of Hamlet.

An eccentric group of players unite to perform Hamlet on Christmas Eve (maybe another reason I associate the play with this season) in an aging church in rural England.

Shakespeare fans, look this one up.

BookHoarder32 One of my favorite movies ever! 😱 9mo

Saying Hamlet is your favorite Shakespeare always feels a bit cliché, like saying 7 Samurai is your favorite foreign film. But dang it, they‘re just both the best.

When I was teaching 5th grade and had to grade papers for 30 kids in 5 subjects, I would put a Hamlet adaptation on the TV and just listen to it as I graded. I just revisited it on audio during my commute.

The production from The Arkangel Shakespeare was just okay but the play rules.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Top 5 Hamlets to grade to: 1964 - Christopher Plummer as Hamlet, 2009 - David Tennant as Hamlet, 2000 - Ethan Hawke as Hamlet, 1996 - Kenneth Branagh as Hamlet, 1964 - Richard Burton as Hamlet 9mo
BookHoarder32 Have you seen the Mel Gibson one? Or the version by Hallmark Entertainment with Campbell Scott? I really wanted to see the one starring Benedict Cumberbatch. I'm such a Hamlet nerd. 🤓 I wrote my senior thesis on the play... (edited) 9mo
TiredLibrarian I saw the Benedict Cumberbatch version & loved it. I also liked the manic Mel Gibson version. Always interesting to see different interpretations. 9mo

While it likely takes place during spring, I always associate Hamlet with Christmas, maybe because of:

“Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour‘s birth is celebrated,
This bird of dawning singeth all night long,
And then they say no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallowed, and so gracious, is that time.”

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Or because of the snow covering Branagh‘s adaptation. 9mo
