What does the soliloquy: to be or not to be express?
Is he trying to talk himself into suicide? Or maybe trying to find the courage..... maybe even trying to talk himself out of it? We don't really know...... but what we do know is that Hamlet is expressing feelings of defeat and hopelessness; a feeling that life is not worth living. Should he "be" or not "be"?
