‘Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t.’

Considered one of Shakespeare’s most rich and enduring plays, the depiction of its hero Hamlet as he vows to avenge the murder of his father by his brother Claudius is both powerful and complex. As Hamlet tries to find out the truth of the situation, his troubled relationship with his mother comes to the fore, as do the paradoxes in his personality. A play of carefully crafted conflict and tragedy, Shakespeare’s intricate dialogue continues to fascinate audiences to this day.

About The Author

William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Hamlet review


Probably ok for other 'intense' readers but the way it was written, I think it's just not for me

Castle Hill


To be? Definitely


This is a great way to become introduced to Shakespeare, never mind the language at first, it soon washes over you and you are caught in an avalanche of suspense, murder, action and entrapment. This is a great way to both look and feel smart at the same time.Be seen reading this and watch how people treat you...with alot more respect!
