Nor arm nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O be some other name!
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet

SMCP05 WROTE: I read both for my AP Literature class and I would probably say that I preferred Hamlet over Macbeth. It had a much stronger basis in thought than action, and the hesitation of Hamlet to take action seemed to build suspense as to how the play would end. I found the psychological struggles, especially the "to be or not to be" speech, extremely interesting. Also, Hamlet's witty comments show Shakespeare at his best.
