Homework Help: Hamlet

Posted by Emma on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 6:56pm.

This question is in regards to Hamlets to be or not be speech.

Historians have noted that some of the most effective leaders in recent history, including some recent Presidents, have not been considered to be especially intelligent. They have made quick decisions and decisive actions in times of crisis. In contrast, some of the most intelligent leaders have been unable to take decisive action in times of crisis. How might this soliloquy explain this situation? Is there a danger inherent in this phenomenon?

I understand from the speech he contemplates the thought of whether it is better to live or die. He also states that people are cowards and are afraid of death because they don't know what will come afterwards. Im not sure how this questions plays in to this theme? Hope that made sense
