This Hamlet poster is created using the entire text from the play.Shakespeare’s potent play, Hamlet, weaves a tale of deception, murder, and revenge with gory alacrity. Haunted by the ghost of his dead father, Hamlet begins to believe that he was murdered by none other than Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude. Hamlet’s growing bitterness and desire for revenge causes a domino effect and soon death seems to haunt his every step. It is when his beloved Ophelia dies that Hamlet finally comes to consider his own demise, but he won’t allow himself to die until he has had his vengeance. In the radical closing moments of this condemned tale, Hamlet makes his final doomed and bloody stand, and his own destiny and the destinies of those around him are forever altered. The tragic rhetoric of Hamlet collates here to mold a disturbing yet beguiling image. The tormented and haunted young Hamlet stands holding a recently unearthed skull, poised to ask the famous question: “To be, or not to be.” Lovely flowers slip from the skull and through his fingers, representing the death of Ophelia – her life force slowly slipping away from him. These floras create a striking scene as they alight delicately upon the water and remain juxtaposed against the gruesome and deadly countenance of the skull. In this work of art, the beauty and horror of death are momentarily united in Hamlet’s hands as he contemplates whether he should choose life or death. Hamlet is a powerful and unforgettable classic which has given devoted readers some of the most recognized literary phrases of all time. Here, these phrases and the rest of Shakespeare’s poignant composition are used to create a compelling work of art worthy of this grotesquely gorgeous literary masterpiece.
