'Hamlet' Quotes: Hamlet

'Hamlet' Quotes part 1: Key Prince Hamlet quotes.

Each colour represents a theme. Green quotes represent quotes linking to Hamlet's delay, unwillingness and melancholy. Pink quotes represent quotes to do with Hamlet's misogyny. Red quotes represent Hamlet's attitude towards Gertrude (good alongside A.C. Bradley criticism). Yellow quotes represent elements of the supernatural in the play. Blue quotes contrast and challenge Hamlet's melancholic delay and examine him as more serious than mad.
