Subject:        Now, what is Hamlet all about?

Hi all.

Now here is a hard but maybe interesting one. Goethe, when asked to
explain what Hamlet was all about said: "a deed too harsh laid upon a
soul too weak" (I hope I remember it well, corrections are welcome).
Now Listers, two questions: a) Do you think the German giant is right?
b) How would you say in just a phrase or a sentence what Hamlet is all
about?

Greetings from Aachen,
Robert Peters
