Shakespeare, Compactly

Shakespeare, Compactly

Look at Hamlet
What Hamlet’s father said to him,
In Hamlet’s mind grew rather dim.
The lesson is: We can’t obey
Unless our mind is just one way.

Self-reproof Isn’t Everything
The prince soliloquizes;
His indignation rises.
And Hamlet stands reproved.
But Hamlet hasn’t moved.

All about Lady Macbeth
Lady Macbeth, too ambitious,
Caused her husband to be vicious.
Macbeth heeding her commands,
Made his lady wash her hands.

Family Net
Romeo and Juliet
Is about a family net.
Love fares sadly by a vault.
Wasn’t it the families’ fault?

The Question in King Lear
All through the play this is asked by King Lear:
Could anyone tell me what is going on here?
