A moste excellente Hamlet fanfic for ye olde Shakespeare buffs! This comedic tour-de-force mixes wordplay with swordplay, the existential with the ridiculous, and arrives at something both deeply profound and riotously entertaining. Highly recommended in both print and movie versions! Statement!

Despite the fact that the two characters are minor figures in Hamlet, they have much more in common with the late 20th C.
Being that the play was written in the late 1960's, they have ultimately a closer connection to Beckett than Shakespeare. A lot of great lines dealing with the human condition, like you would expect when "channeling" Shakespeare.
