Product Description

Publisher: Bantam Classics   Publication Year: 1988   First Edition: No

Book Type: Used   Format: Paperback   Condition: Good

One of the greatest plays of all time, the compelling tragedy of the tormented young prince of Denmark continues to capture the imaginations of modern audiences worldwide. Confronted with evidence that his uncle murdered his father, and with his mother’s infidelity, Hamlet must find a means of reconciling his longing for oblivion with his duty as avenger. The ghost, Hamlet’s feigned madness, Ophelia’s death and burial, the play within a play, the “closet scene” in which Hamlet accuses his mother of complicity in murder, and breathtaking swordplay are just some of the elements that make Hamlet an enduring masterpiece of the theater.

Edition Includes: • Vivid, readable introduction by noted scholar David Bevington • A lively personal forword by Joseph Papp • An insightful essay on the play in performance • Comprehensive explanatory notes conveniently placed at the bottom of each page of text • Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English • Completely updated, annotated bibliographies • A listing of famous lines and phrases

DAVID BEVINGTON, internationally renowned Shakespeare scholar, is Phyllis Fay Horton Professor of Humanities at the Universiy of Chicago and editor of Scott, Foresman's 'The Complete Works of Shakespeare'.

JOSEPH PAPP, one of the most important forces in theater today, is the founder and producer of the New York Shakespeare Festival, America's largest and most prolific theatrical institution. He has produced or dircted all but one of Shakespeare's plays.
