Hamlet is, by far, my favorite Shakespear play and has been since high school. Some people do crossword puzzles or sudoku for mental stimulation, I open up Hamlet and try to come up with a new theory for one of the characters I haven't completely figured out yet. There is no end to it, its been named a "problem play" by scholars for a reason, there is no basic interpretation that explains everything going on and why all the characters do what they do. Its now 11 years since I've first read this and I still can't decide whether or Ophelia was secretly pregnant when she killed herself.
