Hamlet As Told in a Series of Texts

BBC Two

Credit:

Hamlet is a complex tragedy about revenge and the human condition, which means it's PERFECT for taking the original source material and summing it up in a sequence of emoji-riddled texts. I recently recapped Hamlet and enjoyed it immensely, but when I wasn't busy enjoying it, I was thinking, Would Hamlet text back right away? Does he use the contentious "k"? Are his read receipts on?

Feel free to debate this at length, but I think we all know the answers are yes, yes, and always.
