William Shakespeare

Book Overview: 

Hamlet is commonly regarded as one of the greatest plays ever written. Drawing on Danish chronicles and the Elizabethan vogue for revenge tragedy, Shakespeare created a play that is at once a philosophic treatise, a family drama, and a supernatural thriller. In the wake of his father’s death, Prince Hamlet finds that his Uncle Claudius has swiftly taken the throne and married his mother, Queen Gertrude. The ghost of the dead king then appears and charges Claudius with ‘murder most foul.’ Hamlet is called to revenge his father’s death: but will he be able to act before it is too late?

What news, my lord?

Ham. (C.) O, wonderful!


Good my lord, tell it.



You will reveal it.

Hor. Not I, my lord, by heaven.


Nor I, my lord.

Ham. How say you, then; would heart of man once think it?

But you'll be secret?—

The Skinhead Hamlet - Shakespeare's play translated into modern English. By Richard Curtis. Yes, that Richard Curtis!

Note : those offended by the F word - LOOK AWAY NOW! And Georgia, if you've stumbled on this review by your funny old dad - this is ANOTHER Paul Bryant. Not me!



shakespeare when pitching this play, probably: this is my OC hamlet. hes a prince. hes bisexual. hes moody, brooding, and is anywhere between the ages of 16 to 30 years old. and no, i am not taking constructive criticism.

well, let me tell you what. im sold! i love hamlet. i love his angsty monologue

if you don't ship Hamratio did you even read the play???

Is it possible that I had only read the first 4 scenes and Hamlet already became one of my favorite male characters ever? YES!
He’s constantly wearing black and monologuing about how literally everything is hard and making everything more dramatic then it is, is so ME!?

And this is considered a

بين العبقرية و الجنون شعرة. فهل ادعى هاملت الجنون ليثأر لمقتل أبيه أم أنه جن فعلا و تصرفاته بعد ذلك هي قمة الجنون؟
في مسرحية لم ينج منها أحد من السيف أو السم أو الغرق ... هل خسر الجميع و فاز الجمهور؟

تبدأ الحكاية بموت الملك و عودة ولده هاملت إلى الدنمارك لتولي العرش فيجد أن أمه قد تزوجت عمه الذي اعتلى

متردد في قراءة هاملت..ستندم اذن!ا
كلنا نكره الاختيارات..و نجاهد احيانا لنلقي بها على غيرنا
نختار هذا اللون..ام ذاك؛ننام ام نعمل ..نقرأ هاملت و لا نؤجلها؟
ننتقم ام نسامح ؟
و الاهم☀ نسلك هذا الطريق المضيء..ام ذاك الطريق المعتم؟
نكون او لا نكون؟

ا"غاية ما دافعت به عن اب و ملك عزيز نكب أشد النكبات..هو ان اهذي

I don't have any earth-shattering insights to share from this most recent of god-knows-how-many readings, but this time through I was struck by:

1) what a damn fine piece of stagecraft this is, from the suspenseful, moody opening on the castle battlements to the solemn dead march carrying the prince

یه اعتراف می خوام بکنم:
من قبلاً از بین کارهای شکسپیر، هملت رو اصلاً دوست نداشتم. عاشق اتللو و مکبث بودم، ولی از هملت خوشم نمی اومد اصلاً و نمی دونستم چرا معروف ترین اثر شکسپیره.

همه ى اين ها، تا وقتى شنيدم "بنديكت كمبربچ" نقش هملت رو بازى كرده. قبلاً اجراى سينمايى "مل گيبسون" رو ديده بودم، و راستش چن
