I will be analyzing a monologue he has in the middle of the play in the palace he is staying in. The topic of suicide was frowned and shamed upon this point in time but it was a popular theme in English literature since the idea was very prevalent in the minds of the common public at the time. He talks more about how society brings misfortune more than it does fortune and that it would be okay to end it since it was indeed very frustrating and unfair. This point can be furthered in the second part of the lines. To die, to sleep. He views death as a constant sleep in which you can never awaken from. I believe that the concept of death as a long slumber became popular through the Hamlet play.
The quote is said in jealousy, in A Midsummer Night's Dream, To die, to sleep to sleep, perchance to dream ay, there's the rub, for in this.
