Things I am never ever going to get over:

• The fact that the scene at the end of Hamlet where Horatio goes to drink the poison to join Hamlet in death is an exact perfect parallel of the scene at the end of Romeo & Juliet where Juliet goes to drink the poison to join Romeo in death, which is not at all a coincidence.

• The fact that the entire play Horatio is calm and level-headed but the moment Hamlet is dying all that goes out the window as he becomes a grief-stricken mess, completely unprepared and unwilling to live without Hamlet.

• The fact that the word “sweet” has historical significance as a deliberate indicator of homosexual love and how that means the inclusion of “sweet prince” at the end of the play is a completely deliberate indication that Hamlet and Horatio were in love.
