In an article written by Carl Pickhardt he explains why ignoring romantic crushes is serious and how it should not be ignored. The article explains how these sorts of crushes are of…

This moment in the story, and the fact that almost everyone involved in the progression of the plot dies should be reason enough to believe that mortality is a recurring theme in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.…
