In my reviews I try neither to persuade nor to dissuade others. I believe the art of reading is a very personal experience and that my opinion should not intrude upon others enjoyment. I merely state how I felt while reading and I will allow others to decide for themselves. This is why I will not present a play-by-play description. I will only offer a few basic details to help you decide if what I present is worth your time.
Hamlet (Cambridge School Shakespeare) - William Shakespeare, Rex Gibson, Richard Andrews This is my favorite of all of Shakespeare’s works. It is bold and derivative in its very nature. Power, fear, love, misunderstandings, hate, revenge, feigned madness and coldly, calculated opportunities are presented as an honest mirror of man’s dark heart, due to this, it is a ‘must read’ for all.


I believe two of my favorite quotes sums and defines this play well:


Hamlet to Rosencrantz: “What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how
infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and
admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like
a god!”
(spoken in jest)


Horatio to Prince Fortinbras: And let me speak to the yet unknowing world
How these things came about: so shall you hear
Of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts,
Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters,
Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause,
And, in this upshot, purposes mistook
Fall'n on the inventors' reads: all this can I
Truly deliver.
