Abstract
 Written at the turn of the 16th century, in the fault lines of two cultural paradigms, Shakespeare’s Hamlet exemplifies the ways literature (theatre) intercepts the imaginary of Early Modern culture and history, voicing unexpressed collective fears and anxieties.    In particular, I will focus on early modern collective perceptions of Time and Death which Hamlet explores thereby exposing   the symptoms of the emerging capitalist bourgeoisie : the compulsiveness of labour and the deadliness of life underwritten  by the entrepreneurial zeal of the new protestant subjects.
