Shakespeare

I’m in the process of reading Hamlet and there is a great introduction in this book, where a quote just grabbed me, so I thought I should share:

“To celebrate the analogy between human self and actor, as poets, writers, and the critics of the theater found, is to recognize the possibility of manipulation and falsehood and even to court the very emptiness of absence in being that might deny any divine orign to human life.”
