n 1600 or 1601, when Shakespeare was in his mid-thirties, he wrote his first major tragedy. Hamlet was performed in New York at the Sam H. Harris Theater in New York 101 times between Nov. 1922 and Feb. 1923, starring John Barrymore, who then took his production on the road to London.(Shakespearean).
hakespeare’s revelation of the problematic nature of reality reveals much about appearances and apparitions. Which of us has not thought incoherently or in contradictory terms? “To be or not to be . . .” can describe man’s moral dilemma as well as his intellectual indecisiveness. L. C. Knights’ “An Approach to Hamlet” in Twentieth Century Interpretations of Hamlet claims that “Hamlet’s question, the question that he is continually asking himself, is, How can I live? What shall I do to rid myself of this numbing sense of meaninglessness brought by the knowledge of corruption?”
