Compendium of Hamlet References

Titles from HAMLET, Act I

This site is cool and deserves mention if only for the amount of work it must have taken. Start with Hamlet alone, and work your way through the entire play, finding quotes that have been referenced as the title of other works. Example: Edith Wharton’s “The Glimpses of the Moon” is probably referenced back from I,iv: “What may this mean That thou, dead corse, again in complete steel Revisit’st thus the glimpses of the moon…”

The entire play is analyzed like this. I think I’d like some links, where relevant, to the resources cited. After all, what good is having this master list of references (I presume that they are all books, no movies) if I can’t explore them further? Philip K. Dick wrote a book/story called “Time Out of Joint.” Great. I want more info. Now what? I can go search Amazon, but this is a resource just screaming out for some affiliate links.
