The most beautiful Shakespeare quotes - wishes db

London. Hamlet delivers what is probably the most famous monologue in literary history (act 3, scene 1) and in it expresses his longing for death as well as his Weltschmerz: “To be or not to be; That is the question here: / Is it more noble in mind, the arrow and sling endure / The angry fate or, / Arming oneself against a sea of ​​plagues, / By resistance they end? Die – sleep – “

The beginning has become a winged word. But many more sentences from his pieces have become wisdom. Shakespeare has become something of a global literary brand. His level of awareness can hardly be surpassed: 123 million Google hits can be found for his name. Much research has been carried out into his work. Right down to the last detail: “Shakespeare’s work contains 138,198 commas, 26,794 semicolons and 15,785 question marks,” says author and Shakespeare expert Bill Bryson.
