I was so confused during today’s Drac Daily about this part in particular
Tumblr media
Because that??? Bro, that ain’t Hamlet.
I went digging and found someone attempting to explain it:
Tumblr media
If it is referencing this scene then it’s the part in the play where Hamlet says he’s going to throw everything off the table of his mind and focus only on revenge (this does...not work out for him).

Stoker’s dumb acting friend MISQUOTED SHAKESPEARE loudly and often enough that it wound up in this novel????????

Horrible Staging Idea #124
Macbeth but everyone is too afraid to say “Macbeth” so there’s just an awkward pause whenever his name comes up in the script. Also it isn’t printed on the program or any of the advertising

Ok so when YOU put on skits for your family, your parents think you’re cute and show you “love” and “affection.” But when I do it, it’s all “what means this play?” and “u have to go to england for committing treason”

"tybalt isnt meant to be hated he's a villain by product of his family and the society he lives in. he is just as much a victim as romeo and juliet" listen. i know this. ive analyzed the original text. ive written essays on how romeo and juliet is not a love story but a story of those victimized and villainized by their parents. my hatred for tybalt capulet is personal.

Hunter gets his hands on some Shakespeare books, and gets really into them. This eventually results in him defecting. He has a copy of Hamlet, one of Macbeth, and one of the Merchant of Venice.
Hunter quotes random lines. Most of the time the references do not fit with the actual situation. Luz, however, thinks this is brilliant, even if all she can quote is “something wicked this way comes” and Hamlets “to be or not to be”.
Shakespeare is not known at all in the Isles, so scream-quoting it during a fight is helpful in confusing your enemy.
Katya is the only other person who has read Shakespeare. She makes a club with Luz and Hunter.
At the end of the story, when Luz returns home, she buys a full collection and gifts them to Hunter.

They win by making us think we’re alone. We’re not alone. Good people will fight if we lead them. She never gave up. And neither will we. We’re gonna show them we’re not afraid. What our mothers and fathers fought for, we will not let die. Not today. Today, we make our last stand. For everyone we’ve lost.
shakespeare anon...look, I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure this is a Star Wars quote

Do you think antis call Literary Majors, theater kids, and English High School teachers P*dos because they study Romeo and Juliet in which Romeo is stated as being 16 and Juliet is stated as being 13?
Do you think they call Shakespeare a P*do and we should boycott his plays?

always thinking about the production of hamlet i saw at the pop up globe a couple of years ago where everyone was costumed in typical shakespearean dress and the set was fairly minimal BUT! they gave polonius an iphone. it was like a running gag that his ringtone kept going off when hamlet or claudius were trying to speak and they would get more and more impatient with him every time. the cast had perfect comedic timing and it was such a perfect modernisation of typical shakespeare humour
but oh my God. the nervous laughter that rippled through the audience when his phone went off behind the tapestry. the heavy silence that followed, interrupted only by the incessant chime of polonius' ringtone and a muffled "shit, shit!" while he tried to decline the call. it keeps ringing even after hamlet has already put his sword through him. hamlet picks it up in his bloody hands and ends the call, puts it back in polonius' grasp before turning back to face gertrude.
hands down the best set up and pay-off of any addition to a shakespeare play i have ever witnessed
