Shakespeare ’s plays feature many soliloquies, some of which are his most famous passages. Perhaps the most famous is Hamlet ’s ‘to be or not to be’ soliloquy, where Hamlet contemplates suicide . The audience is taken through his thought processes, where he balances the pros and cons of ending his life – an all time classic soliloquy.

To care for the quarrels of the past, to identify oneself passionately with a cause that became, politically speaking, a losing cause with the birth of the modern world, is to experience a kind of straining against reality, a rebellious nonconformity that, again, is rare in America, where children are instructed in the virtues of the system they live under, as though history had achieved a happy ending in American civics.Joseph McCarthy

The farthest out male is the dragqueen, but he, although different from most men, is exactly like all other dragqueens; like the functionalist, he has an identity - a female; he tries to define all his troubles away - but still no individuality. Not completely convinced that he's a woman, highly insecure about being sufficiently female, he conforms compulsively to the man-made feminine stereotype, ending up as nothing but a bundle of stilted mannerisms.valerie solanas
