Hamlet as the 'first and finest emo'?

A new take on Hamlet

Katie Neville

Here's a new take on Hamlet.  Shakespeare fan Kate-Lyn from South Africa sees him as the "first and finest Emo" and enjoys the character's dark humour. "I think I relate to him in some ways," she says, "apart from the whole, you know, shall I murder my uncle thing..."  It was great to talk to Kate-Lyn when she visited Shakespeare's Birthplace on a cold and windy afternoon.
