the play is another example of Gill’s argument that Hamlet is an ever-evolving work of literature. In his conclusion, Gill makes no compelling claim. He only points out that Hamlet is more than a canonical piece of literature. It possesses life. It gives life. The play creates its own history, one that changes the tapestry of the play itself into something much more grandiose and poignant. If we as readers and students are to learn anything from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, it is that the play has given us just as much voice as the actors themselves.
