Hamlet Tough-o-Meter

By William Shakespeare

Tough-o-Meter

(8) Snow Line

It's Shakespeare, so it's tough. We get that. But it's not impossible. For one, it's about the most famous play in the whole world—at least the English-speaking part of the world. Also, unlike a lot of Shakespeare's plays, its hero is dealing with issues that everyone can understand: annoying parents, lack of ambition, and a serious case of procrastination. If you can get past the language, we're pretty sure you're in for a pleasant surprise.
