What I know about Hamlet

11 05 2014

The Lion King came up in discussion last week, I was telling someone how it’s based on Hamlet. But to me that doesn’t mean a whole lot, I’ve never seen or read it.

The only very brief summary I ever heard was from Just William, by Richmal Crompton. I think it’s brilliant!

“This man was called Hamlet, and his uncle had killed his father because he wanted to marry his mother.”
“What did he want to marry his mother for?” said William, “I’ve never heard of anyone wanting to marry their mother.”

Still makes me chuckle even now 🙂
