Octavian Saiu, „Hamlet and the Madness of the World”
„Today, as the storm of King Lear abates, leaving in its wake, like a tsunami, a dehumanised world, the only play we are still able to relate to is Hamlet. Hamlet, with all the madness it contains and which remained concealed for four hundred years so that we might have the bitter satisfaction of experiencing it first-hand. Hamlet is our contemporary because he is mad. As we all are. Indeed, Hamlet has long since ceased to be the Renaissance prince contemplating his inner self. Nor is he anymore the rebellious hero struggling to save the world. He is merely the disjointed image of humanity at the insane beginning of a new millennium. It is we who are Hamlet!”

Octavian Saiu
