Hamlett Off Stage

By D.C. Berry

POLONIUS: "The beautiful beauty of Berry’s art is he can’t decide if Hamlet is an old maid like me or not."

CLAUDIUS: "Berry brilliant at showing the tragic results of a college boy not getting any."

OPHELIA: "I agree with ’Ratio. Hamlet oddly sexmatized in his development. Berry nails it, next time less Hambone and more Hardbone."

REYNALDO: "Every hypocrisy on earth revealed here. Shaky tried to write a thriller for the bucks. Got thrown off by artsy-fartsy, which the keen Berry brilliantly avoids."

ROSENCRANTZ: "Berry brilliant here. Finer concluding couplets never penned."


D.C. BERRY taught at the University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Writers, where for years he was poet in residence. There he published hundreds of poems and several volumes and three times won the Excellence in Teaching Award, while being honored as a Charles W. Moorman Distinguished Professor in the Humanities. He lives in Oxford, Mississippi.
