Is to be or not to be the most important question

Answered By: Alexander Barnes Date: created: Jun 21 2021

Hamlet’s famous question is limited and misleading.

The famous line that begins Prince Hamlet’s soliloquy in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “To be, or not to be, that is the question” is probably the most cited statement in all classical drama.

“To be or not to be” is in fact, not the question.

It is the wrong question..
