Teaser Tuesday: Hamlet ~ William Shakespeare

August 16, 2011

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit
And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,
I will be brief: your noble son is mad.

(2.2 90-92) Hamlet by William Shakespeare

    I don’t think I have actually ever read any Shakespeare just for fun. I need to do that!

    I’m so impressed that you’re reading Hamlet!

    Great teaser! Hamlet is a wonderful play for “teasers” — just about every line is intriguing.

    I truly love this teaser. We forget the classics so often.

    I loved Hamlet. It has been a long time since I read it. What a wonderful teaser. It brings back memories of when I read it with my class.
