  2. I don t have any original insights to share from this most recent of god knows how many readings, but this time through I was really struck by 1 what a damn fine piece of stagecraft this is, from the suspenseful, moody opening on the castle battlements to the solemn dead march carrying the prince offstage, and 2 how Shakespeare seems to want Hamlet s personality particularly the wellspring of his acti...

  6. Madness in great ones must not unwatch d go I don t know what to say about Hamlet I could go on about how it is a story of madness and revenge I could talk about the bonds of family loyalty, the sacrifices of love, the breaches of trust and their deleterious effects on the psyche But this is old news Hamlet has been around for over four hundred years What could I possibly say that hasn t already been said When my wife saw I was reading Shakespeare, her snippy comment went something like,Madness in great ones must not...

  7. It is only when I read and compare across languages that I realise what a hard and thankless job translation is, especially older texts andso when there s a significant cultural distance between languages Shakespeare s diction is so profoundly poetic and idiomatic that it might be thought untranslatable, even when it is rendered into modern English idiom, it loses its antique beauty when tampered with, like those monuments reconstructed from history that look like originals but actually a It is only when I read and compare across languages that I realise what a hard and thankless job translation is, especially older texts andso when there s a significant cultural distance between languages Shakespeare s diction is so profoundly poetic and idiomatic that it might be thought untranslatable, even when it is rendered into modern English idiom, it loses its antique beauty when tampered with, like those monuments reconstructed from history that look like originals but actually are not.And so reading Shakespeare in Urdu was always going to be a fascinating experience I commend Firaq Gorakhpuri s consummate skill in recreating Hamlet in an idiom that recalls the dying days of the classical dialect mixed in with sufficient modernist ...

  8. Shakespeare is an adept poet and master of the language He layers on jokes, puns, and references everywhere He has a massive output of work, and a number of different plots When we compare him to other authors, it is difficult to find anyone who stacks up but then, we re often comparing him to the wrong people.Shakespeare didn t write books or pamphlets or epics, he wrote plays short pieces of drama that were meant to be fast paced and exciting That they are mainly experienced today as bou Shakespeare is an adept poet and master of the language He layers on jokes, puns, and references everywhere He has a massive output of work, and a number of different plots When we compare him to other authors, it is difficult to find anyone who stacks up but then, we re often comparing him to the wrong people.Shakespeare didn t write books or pamphlets or epics, he wrote plays short pieces of drama that were meant to be fast paced and exciting That they are mainly experienced today as bound books and not theatrical productions does not change their origins If one wants to look at the achievements of Shakespeare, he should be compared to someone of a similar bent.He should be compared with prolific writers known for catchy jokes and phrases Writers who reuse old plots, making fun of their traditions Writers of work meant to be performed Writers who aim for the lowest common deno...

  9. All that is amiable and excellent in nature is combined in Hamlet, with the exception of one quality He is a man living in meditation, called upon to act by every motive human and divine, but the great object of his life is defeated by continually resolving to do, yet doing nothing but resolveLecture XII, STC.As much as I admire Coleridge and with the boldness of having read Hamlet only once and therefore being aware I haven t even managed to scratch the surface of the Paragon of TragediesAll that is amiable and excellent in nature is combined in Hamlet, with the exception of one quality He is a man living in meditation, called upon to act by every motive human and divine, but the great object of his life is defeated by continually resolving to do, yet doing nothing but resolveLecture XII, STC.As much as I admire Coleridge and with the boldness of having read Hamlet only once and therefore being aware I haven t even managed to scratch the surface of the Paragon of Tragedies, I dare to antagonize the poet and proclaim that I resist the idea of linking Hamlet s moral idealism to reprehensible inaction.The Prince of Denmark s obsession is to think, not to act, and in spite of having been dethroned by his duplicitous uncle, he seems to count with the favor of the common people But Hamlet can t help being haunted by the sickness of life and he retreats into the abyss of his inwardness He is plagued by endless q...
