Subject: Hamlet Survey?
I would like to propose a Hamlet Survey: this is open for discussion.
It seems to me that none of us know what the majority of SHAKSPEReans
think about Hamlet the main character: was he?
(b) pretending madness
(c) calculating avenger
I know some hate surveys, think they are a waste of time, and I wonder
if there is some merits in the above, for knowing what the majority view
of the character is today? I am looking for a method to do a large
sample, and not just have a few brave souls respond. Ideas? Numbers
sometimes speak wonders.
