Hamlet: The Mystery of the Play, The Mystery of Life
Aspen Institute moderators Ken and Carol Adelman will lead this robust conversation on Hamlet, addressing the numerous age-old questions surrounding the popular play, including: Why can’t Hamlet revenge his father’s murder? Why doesn’t Hamlet become King when his father dies? Why does his mother remarry so soon? Does Hamlet go crazy, or only pretend to? What makes Ophelia go crazy? With the help of Shakespeare experts Ken and Carol Adelman, participants will try and “pluck out the heart of my mystery,” as Hamlet says himself.
