What is Hamlet about?

Look in thy glass and tell the face thou viewestNow is the time that face should form another;Whose fresh repair if now thou not renewest,Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother.For where is she so fair whose uneared wombDisdains the tillage of thy husbandry?Or who is he so fond will be the tombOf his self-love, to stop posterity? Thou art thy mother's glass and she in theeCalls back the lovely April of her prime;So thou through windows of thine age shalt see,Despite of wrinkles, this thy golden time.But if thou live, remembered not to be,Die single and thine image dies with thee.

What is Sonnet #3's meaning?

Look in your mirror and tell the face you seeThat now is the time it should form another [create a child];If you do not renew yourself,You rob the world, and prevent some woman from becoming a mother.For where is the woman whose unploughed wombWould frown upon the way you plough your field?Or who is he so foolish to love himself so much but letHimself perish? [To make a tomb of self-love and not have a child to carry on his beauty?]You are the mirror of your mother, and she is the mirror of youAnd in you she recalls the lovely April of her youth:So too will you see when you are old,Free of wrinkles [now], these are your best years.But if you live your life avoiding being remembered.You will die childless, and your image will die with you.
