Notes on Hamlet

I have the No Fear Shakespeare Edition, so reading the modern English text isn’t too difficult.  When I go back and read the Old English script however is a bit more difficult and you have to go back and maybe reread the sentence over five times.  Hamlet is getting a bit more sporadic and bold as the play moves on; first he was sobbing and mourning privately to himself, but now he has killed Polonius and threatening his mother.   I foreshadow that everything is going to go downhill for everyone.  Nothing every good comes from revenge except a whole lot of chaos.
