YevgenyYevtushenko's famous biographical poem called "Zima
Which of contemporary writers
is most acute and up-to-date?
Perhaps, as a judge I am not righteous,
- it's Shakespeare, I estimate.
And, like a wave, the theme of Hamlet
dashes upon one's temples now
that fools and men of perfect talent
are puzzled and confused, somehow.
And wringing their hands but slowly
to sounds of jet whistle and drone
trying to catch a train or trolley
crowds of Hamlets are on the run.
The voice of actors drown humbly
in roaring storms and trouble sea
when the whole world to-day, like Hamlet,
decides: "To be or not to be".
