      This has always been a favorite of mine. I understand that people may either love or hate Shakespeare, however I am unable to comprehend the latter. Shakespeare's characters provide a deep psychology for the audience to grab on to. Although one may not neccessarily agree with a specific character's motives or ideals, he or she is absolutely able to now argue the character's mind set; you are in their mind and understand how they see the world. This is a literary vacation in my opinion; to be abl [...]

      Formerly a member of the Royal Shakespearean Company, actor/director Kenneth Branagh confesses that he has been intrigued and in some ways obsessed by Hamlet from early on in his life, early teens and before. That intense devotion-bordering-on-obsession serves this book well, as well as it's movie counterpart. Both the introduction and the film diary give excellent insights into not just how the movie was made, but the play itself, and how things that we don't notice--for example, what a good st [...]

      Such a remarkable bildungsroman: a book of development. The young Hamlet, who has to grow up when his father is suspiciously killed, and his uncle suddenly marries his mother. Hamlet is forced to decide whether or not he will honor his father's ghost who tells him that his own brother has killed him to marry his wife--Hamlet's mother. The story goes on to tell how Hamlet's decision creates the complications and final resolve, but it is amazing how Shakespeare (again) is a master at the psycholog [...]

      This was the first work of Shakespeare's I'd ever read and is still my second favorite (Henry V being the first). No need to mention all the familiar, insightful quotes from this most famous of plays; it is a brilliant work of art. And no, I do not adhere to the Oedipal interpretation of Hamlet and his mother's relationship. I don't see much difference between his relationship with his mom as I do with even modern men, especially coming from an ethnic culture. It's always hard, being an only chi [...]

      Update: So it has been about 2 weeks since I saw this on stage. I still can't decide whether I hated it more or less after watching it all live. The play wasdiocre. I was told that I would be seeing a traditional Shakespearean play and yet what I got was some nonsense interpretation. If a theatrical institution receives millions upon millions of donations a year I expect more historically accurate costumes and actual props. The acting was fabulous, but the casting made little sense. Horatio and [...]

      This book is about the Prince of Denmark named Hamlet, something bad changes Hamlet's life. His father, is the late King Hamlet. He was killed. Shortly after, his mother married Hamlet's uncle instead of letting Hamlet taking the throne. Hamlet's anger towards his mother and uncle grew after his father came to him in a ghost form and told Hamlet, he was murdered by his new step dad. Hamlet promises to revenge his death but stalls when he finds out it was Claudius, the new king and his mother's n [...]

      I recently read "Hamlet" William Shakespeare. This story has many weird twists that are much unexpected. Due to all of the turns in the story, I lost interest in some parts. Basically the entire moral of the story is revenge, and who is seeking who at what given time. Hamlet, the main character has to build up the strength to seek the revenge he is looking for and in the end something happens that takes the reader for ninety degree turn. Not only is "Hamlet" about revenge but also true love. Thr [...]

    10. Nicole-Ann

      Perhaps the most profound gem of Shakespearean wisdom can be found within Hamlet's pages in the famous soliloquy:To be, or not to be, that is the question:Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sufferThe slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,Or to take arms against a sea of troublesAnd by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,No more; and by a sleep to say we endThe heart-ache and the thousand natural shocksThat flesh is heir to: 'tis a consummationDevoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;To sleep, [...]

      Hamlet, of course, is always amazing; however, for those who will be viewing the play rather than reading it, Kenneth Branagh's is the one. (The David Tennant film is tepid; the Ethan Hawke one is unbearable.)

    12. Darklove

      Love Shakespeare.Hamlet is amazing! Sad that all die in the end. Not fair. Because Hamlet deserved to life. Even he wanted to revenge.

    13. Matthew Simmons

      Quite simply the greatest play ever written, in my opinion. While Branagh's film adaptation isn't my favorite, it's still very good and I generally love his take on the Bard.

    14. Christopher

      Not as in depth as I had hoped. This film means so much to me and I was hoping this book would deepen my appreciation of it. Sadly, it's pretty superficial.

    15. Robby Bassler

      Hamlet acts much like his late father in that he believes that women have little bearing over their own decisions, due to their submissive nature, and thus should not be punished; however, when they do make decisions, they are generally evil and deceptive. The ghost talks about Gertrude’s incestuous actions as being her own choice. He states that she was seemingly innocent. Despite the established guilt of Gertrude, the ghost refuses for Hamlet to cause her any suffering. The brother, however, [...]

      This version is excellent for exploring the various ways in which Hamlet can be interpreted. Branagh emphasizes the sexuality and gender relations in his version.
