General Description

Although almost everyone knows the famous question, “To be or not to be,” many do not know the jokes, nuances, and literary genius which surrounds it. In Hamlet, William Shakespeare weaves together irony, insight, and tragedy. Readers struggle with the Prince of Denmark as he plots and chooses and deliberates, depressed and desperate to avenge his father’s murder but wary of the consequences. Readers who dig into the words and structure of Hamlet will not be disappointed.
