What I'm Reading: Hamlet.

Lately I've been watching a lot of television and movies. I told myself I would finish watching the second season of The Man In The High Castle, and then read something. I've done that (damnit it was hard to stop watching that show, it's so good). So my pick was to read Hamlet.

I've been wanting to read Shakespeare for a while, I just couldn't figure out which one of his works it'd be. I went into a thrift shop and picked up a few books (I paid about $3 and walked out with five books, fuckyeah thrifting). Hamlet was amongst them, and it just so happened to be one where it had the "easier" translation right next to the original words. I'm about halfway done with it, and I'm so glad the translation is there. I'd pretty good at understanding Shakespearian writing, but it just helps you get through the book quicker with the modern translations. I still peak over at the original text just to be able to see what means what in the world of Shakespeare.
