Eggs With A Side of Hamlet by Leo Cassel-Siskind, Lilly Roman, Alan Li, Paxton Wentzell In this episode we introduce the characters ofthe play Hamlet, written by Shakespeare. We attempt to make sense out of whatcan often be complicated text so as to put the listener in the best position moving forward by first delving into the mystical appearance of the ghost of the former king and the response by his son Hamlet. We pressed on into the rather awkward topic of how the former king’s wife had married his brother, the new king. Finally, we tried to get a better understanding of Hamlet’s emotional state and perhaps even more importantly how his emotional state is perceived.
