New comment on your post #494 “The decisive Hamlet”
Author : Sariel Har-Peled
Cliff’s notes did not mention any of these people. Which version did you read?

And what about Rosenkrantz and Gilderstein? Their only crime was delivering orders blindly, without even knowing what the orders have been.

Well, even the original Hamlet was not a saint, but being decisive would not have helped but made things even worst.

Of course, one can claim that Ophelia killed herself, and all the other characters were in collaborations with the new king. And Hamlet was insane towards the end, since he stopped taking his medication. Once one has to defend something, one can mount the most idiotic defense.
