Linderman quotes Shakespeare's Hamlet (Act V, Scene 2) to Nathan when he says, "There's a divinity that shapes our ends--rough hew them how we will."
In London, Claude takes Elle to the Globe Theatre to see Shakespeare's Hamlet, comparing that Elle's daddy issues to Hamlet's.
Arthur tells Linderman to read his Shakespeare. He says that Shakespeare has taught us that when "the son challenges the father, only one is left standing."
On his blog, Brian makes a post that quotes Shakespeare's 29th Sonnet, leaving out a few words and letters as a clue:
When, in disgrace with Fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least,
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings,
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
In chapter 2 of Slow Burn, "The Watcher" says, "Find out the cause of this effect, or rather say, the cause of this defect, for this effect defective comes by cause." He implores the reader to remember the quote and who said it. In fact, it was Shakespeare who wrote the lines, which were said by "Polonius" in the play Hamlet.
In chapter 3 of Slow Burn, The Watcher says to Gail Bowman, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks," quoting "Queen Gertrude" in the play Hamlet.
In chapter 4 of Slow Burn, The Watcher sends Chris a phone message and says, "Take all the swift advantage of the hours." "Lord Stanley" first said those lines in the play Richard III.
The title of a page from chapter 5 of Slow Burn is "Wherefore Art Thou, Amanda?" This line is paraphrased from Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. "Juliet" really says, "Wherefore are thou, Romeo?"
- The subtitle of the graphic novel Rebellion, Part 2 is Providence in the Fall of a Sparrow. This is a line from Shakespeare's play Hamlet.
