Solution Giving away the answer to part 3 | Comment 3 of 7 |

Charlie has solved parts 1 and 2 above.

Part 3 is the most amazing part, though!  I was able to work it out, but it brings back memories, and I think that I must have read about this particular problem at some time in the past.

In fact, the solution to part 1 ("In one of the bard's ... how life turns rotten.") can be ANAGRAMMED to exactly form the solution to part 2 ("To be, or not to be ... slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.")

If I had never seen this before, I'm pretty sure that I never would have noticed this remarkable situation on my own!

As far as part 4... well, it would have to be Shakespeare, right?  The only other answer I could think of would be Hamlet himself.  After all, it's his soliloquy!
