Everyday Shakespeare: Hamlet and NBC series “Grimm”


“And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.” (Hamlet)


From William Shakespeare’s famous Jacobean tragedy Hamlet. The story chronicles Prince Hamlet’s pursuit for revenge unto his uncle Claudius for the murder of his father, the King. Arguably the most notable words from the text are the infamous: “to be, or not to be, that is the question,” uttered by Hamlet at the start of a soliloquy in the first folio text edition circa 1623, but every line carries substantial significance. “Goodnight, sweet prince, And flight of angels sing thee to thy rest,” appears towards the end of the text and is uttered by Horatio right after Hamlet’s death.
