He that is mad, and sent into England.

Oh, THAT Hamlet! There are just so many of them – it’s hard to keep them all straight. There’s the one who sledded the dreaded pole-ax on the ice, of course – the old king. But then of course, there’s Hamlet the Plumber. Hamlet, the Florist. He that is athletic and sent to the Olympics. There’s he that is religious and sent to the monastery. There’s Hamlet, the game-show host – Hamlet, the organic farmer. Hamlet the adjunct professor. So it’s good you clarified that you mean the one who is mad and sent to England.
