Gil Bailie’s Reflections on William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. The duty to avenge the murder of one’s father collides with the Christian commandment to love one’s enemies. Hamlet’s hesitation to perform his sacred duty provides the opening for Mr. Bailie to shine the illuminating rays of René Girard’s hypothesis regarding the role of violence at the origins of human culture and personhood by means of Shakespeare’s dramatic masterpiece.
