Monologue Summary

Hamlet is basically contemplating suicide on and off throughout his monologue. In this monologue, he compares death to a little sleep, which he thinks wouldn't be so bad. The only catch is that he might have bad dreams when dead.

Few actors portraying Hamlet!!

Scene History

Shakespeare's Hamlet monologue "To be or not to be" is in my opinion, one of the most famous monologues in English History.
