Shakespeare’s Hamlet

From the chapter on Shakespeare in Paul Johnson’s Creators:

[A]bove all his greatest creation, perhaps the most formidable, extensive, complex, subtle, and penetrating work of art ever carried to perfection, making the works of Leonardo and Michelangelo, Beethoven and Mozart, Dante and Goethe seem inferior by comparison — Hamlet.

~p. 67

High praise.
