Description

Shakespeare’s combination of violence, introspection, dark humour and rich language in Hamlet is intoxicating. It remains the world’s most widely studied and performed play, and is a cornerstone of world literature.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is illustrated throughout by renowned artist Sir John Gilbert and includes an introduction by Dr Robert Mighall.

A young prince meets with his father’s ghost, who alleges that his own brother, now married to his widow, murdered him. The prince devises a scheme to test the truth of the ghost’s accusation, feigning wild madness while plotting a brutal revenge until his apparent insanity begins to wreak havoc on innocent and guilty alike.
