Hamlet—Shakespeare's most popular, and perhaps most puzzling play—follows the form of a "revenge tragedy," in which the hero, Hamlet, seeks vengeance against his father's murderer, his uncle Claudius, now the King of Denmark. Much of its fascination, however, lies in its uncertainties.
This new unabridged audio recording of the well-respected edition of Shakespeare's classic—expertly produced by the Folger Theatre—is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.
