It is the poets, the dreamers and artists who are the architects of the future; the ones who build the world they want to live in, the ones who dream out loud1.

As such, the social, economic

Comparison of Hamlet?s ?To be or not to be? Franco Zeffirelli?s version of Hamlet portrays Hamlet as determined, mournful, and angry man that is unsure of his own fate.
