Compare and contrast the representation(s) of death and/or time in Hamlet and ONE of the following of Shakespeare’s sonnets: 3 “Look in thy glass and tell the face thou viewest”; 12 “When I do count the clock that tells the time”; 15 “When I consider every thing that grows”.

In Sonnet 3 death is viewed in a way that is very similar to how it is presented in Hamlet. In Act III scene 1, for example, Hamlet in his soliloquy describes death as:
The undiscovered country from whose bournNo traveller returns...
But if thou live, remembered not to be,
Die single and thine image dies with thee.
