Understanding "Hamlet" gets easier once you realize that Claudius does not exist.
Before the beginning of the play, Hamlet has had an incestuous relation with his mother - and subsequently killed his father.
Wracked by guilt, he invents an imaginary uncle to blame for the murder.
The death of Polonius is rendered even more tragic by his being mistaken for a figment of Hamlet's imagination.
Hamlet's suicidal musings echo his equally unsuccesful plot to kill Claudius. 
And when Claudius is finally killed, Hamlet dies as well.
Someone in the play probably knows the whole story. Laertes, perhaps?

On the corner of Zietenstraße (where our flat is located) and Bülowstraße (which bears our name) in #Berlin, this nice mural appeared within the last couple of months...

I must have been a teenager the first time I read Joyce's "Ulysses" - or maybe even younger. At the time, I read it translated to my native Danish, and - like your typical young book geek - I tore through it at the speed of light.
Forty years on, I decided to give it another go - this time in the original English version. This of course slowed me down considerably. I even put the book aside once or twice (especially the "Oxen of the Sun" chapter takes some dedication for a second language English speaker). But last night Molly Bloom eventually bade me farewell with her final "Yes".
I don't remember much about how I perceived this book the first time around - but I seem to recall that I was mainly fascinated by its unconventionality and its playful attitude towards language.
The second time around I was struck by the sheer scale of Joyce's project: Not only does he try to hold the whole of the human condition - indeed, all of creation - within the pages of the book. He also tries to explore the outer limits of language - from high to low, from archaic to ultra-modern.
There are moments of unique beauty, of amazing linguistic brilliance - and not least, an unstoppable sense of humour that is both darkly cynical and heartwarming. The reader is encouraged to laugh - emphatically - at the all-pervasive displays of human folly.
I see how a work like this can appear insurmountable. But to me, "Ulysses" is another one of those artworks I love because the artist has set the bar almost too high.
My advice: Read a short summary of the plot (such as the one on Wikipedia) before entering - then you can concentrate solely on language - which is what "Ulysses" is really all about.
