While searching for an accurate picture of Hamlet on Google, I realized that every photo of Hamlet included a skull. We read the scene in the graveyard where Hamlets mopes about the futility of life when he holds the skull of someone who helped raise him. When I read his speech I figured it was just Hamlet being Hamlet and didn't find any revealing insight into Hamlet's thought. But after looking at all of these different portrayals of him, I would say this scene could be the epitome of Hamlet's attitude and outlook on life. He acknowledges that everyone will die and his argument of futility becomes more depressing from there.
