Shall I compare thee - Sonnet XVIII
This sonnet is dedicated to a friend, the "fair youth"; Shakespeare opposes the time to the eternal beauty. I appreciated this sonnet because Shakespeare celebrates also the immortality of literature, in fact art is the only thing that escapes from time and allows us to know the existence of humanity in millenniums.
"But thy eternal summer shall not fade."
Hamlet meets the Ghost - Hamlet
I loved the part where the ghost asks Hamlet to kill king Claudius, a father who obliges his son to kill the king and symbolically the God, just to avenge himself. What kind of father could ask his son to kill someone??
"Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder!"
To be or not to be - Hamlet
This is my favourite Hamlet's scene, Shakespeare tells us his point of view about the "undiscovered country" and life's problems. Do you think death ends all the problems? No, not anymore. Nobody knows what happen when we die, when we pass from the known to the UNknown.
"The undiscover'd country from whose bourn no traveller returns, puzzles the will."
