Hamlet's Fear Of Death In The Nunnery Scene

548 Words3 Pages
I am Hamlet I could not pinpoint my personal connection to the play Hamlet before really thinking about it. I found that the famous soliloquy in the “Nunnery Scene” that starts with “To be, or not to be…”, is relatable to me. Hamlet is basically having an existential crisis, something that I have also had. That is why I relate to him. In this soliloquy, Hamlet expresses both his fear of death and longing for it. The part I feel a connection to is the fear. Fear of death and what comes after is something that has always been with me, ever since I was a kid. The concept of life after death and what happens to us when we die is a thing I can not wrap my mind around. Are we “travelers” like Hamlet says or are we just going to fade into nothingness?
