Shakespeare's masterpiece. What sets Hamlet apart from other WS plays I have read is its realistic flow: the plot in not contrived (ala Macbeth), the time-frame not quickened (ala Romeo and Juliet), the climax not hollow (ala Julius Caesar). Even the ghosts scenes work. The depth of Hamlet's character, expressed so poignantly in his numerous soliloquies, and the intricacy of the supporting roles further solidify this masterpiece's greatness.
