Back to Shakespeare Back to William Shakespeare


Hamlet's "To be or not to be" - what was his dilemma, then?


Macbeth's "Life's but a walking shadow"

Soliloquy in act 5, scene 5, of William Shakespeare's play entitled Macbeth.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing...

This quote or idea was William Faulkner's inspiration for the title of a novel of his, The Sound and the Fury, an amazing story of which there is a movie version with Yul Bryner.
