In this quintessential Shakespearean drama, Hamlet's halting pursuit of revenge for his father's death unfolds in a series of highly charged confrontations that climax in tragedy. Probing the depths of human feeling like few other works of art, the play is reprinted here from an authoritative British edition complete with illuminating footnotes.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Applying the Classics Illustrated formula (interpreting canonical literature in a graphic format) to Shakespeare's moody tragedy unfortunately doesn't make the play's structure less complex or more readily accessible. But the imagery does translate some of the main tropes of the drama: the ravages of age, the innermost fears of outwardly self-confident youth. Speeches placed in snippets within balloons are difficult to follow unless the reader is already familiar with who should be saying what from experience with the original text. This is then best suited as supplementary, rather than introductory, material for the classroom.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2009 Booklist"
