“The time is out of joint. O cursed spite, that ever I was born to set it right.”
Hamlet Act 1, scene 5
Hamlet is thrown into a situation that is alien to him. He is studious, bookish (perhaps a little introverted), definitely thoughtful and possibly a bit self-absorbed and yet he finds himself tasked with revenging his father’s murder. Does he go mad in response to the pressure of this onerous responsibility and the truth he has discovered, or is there ‘method in it’? What is real and what is not what it seems?
