Kurt Vonnegut at the Blackboard - Lapham’s Quarterly:
But there’s a reason we recognize Hamlet as a masterpiece: it’s that Shakespeare told us the truth, and people so rarely tell us the truth in this rise and fall here [indicates blackboard]. The truth is, we know so little about life, we don’t really know what the good news is and what the bad news is.
This one’s worth a read: contains the best synopsis of Hamet I’ve ever read. (I’ve read a few, too.)
