I'd go with Faust. Unlike Hamlet, Faust actually becomes a willing participant in metaphysical. Faust asks to become larger than life, to know even more than his numerous degrees have taught him. While Hamlet struggles to understand life, Faust wants to control life. Faust makes the ultimate bargain representing both the highest ideals of humanity and the lowest failures of humanity.
