No writer has made such an impact on our world as William Shakespeare. Still as popular and as relevant today as when his plays were first performed 
over 400 years ago, he remains the dramatist by which all others are judged.The aim of this presentation is to provide a vivid portrait of Shakespeare's
world with a look at his life and work particularly Hamlet. It will take you through the major soliloquies, scenes, characters, and action of the play, to
explore the enigma at the heart of the drama, which is central to its universal appeal, transcending language and nationality.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
