- A few days ago I read in The New York Times that a businessman had
entirely funded a production of Hamlet at Broadway where he himself acted
Hamlet. The fact that this suffering, cerebral character created in the very
beginning of the seventeenth century still appeals to us in a center of the
modern world is something that may arouse some curiosity, to say the least.
My thesis is that the character of Hamlet was built with material resulting
from the cultural earthquake that changed the profile of European geography,
and whose legacy is still with us today.
