My Friend, Chris

- There are many people in this world who hold great reputations. There are far fewer people who posess great character.

Bradley in Shakespearean Tragedy notes a problem involving Horatio in Shakespeare’s Hamlet:   When Horatio, at the end of the soliloquy, enters and greets Hamlet, it is evident that he and Hamlet have not recently met at Elsinore. Yet Horatio came to Elsinore for the funeral (I.ii. 176). Now even if the funeral took place some three weeks ago, it seems rather strange that Hamlet, however absorbed in grief and however withdrawn from the Court, has not met Horatio [....   [tags: GCSE English Literature Coursework]
