Along with the many creative ways that Shakespeare killed off his characters, there are even more ways to represent those deaths in the form of fun illustrations. Not a stranger to death himself, Shakespeare was living and working in a time where rampant disease and social violence were daily norms. Regardless, most of his characters end up dying at the hands of one another, most commonly by stabbing or poisoning. How well do you know the order of deaths in Romeo and Juliet or Hamlet? With these handy Death Clocks, you can easily see the order in which some of our favorite characters perished (and even who killed them!).
