The new HyperHamlet is now online. It has been totally re-designed for easier
use and efficiency.
HyperHamlet offers four centuries of _Hamlet_ quotations in context -- a
completely new kind of evidence for the cultural position held by Shakespeare
and his language. Who quoted these famous lines? Which lines have been quoted
most frequently? When was it especially fashionable to quote _Hamlet_? Do people
know they are quoting _Hamlet_ when they say "There's method in his madness"?
HyperHamlet offers about 8000 quotations by more than 3000 authors (and counting
-- also counting on you as a contributor).
