'There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in our philosophy.'

Arguably Shakespeare's greatest play and certainly his most performed, 
Hamlet tells the impassioned story of the grief-stricken Danish prince's revenge against his uncle, Claudius, for murdering his father in order to seize his throne and marry Hamlet's mother.

A thought-provoking study of the human psyche and familial relationships, the play has been analysed by audiences, critics and psychologists (including Sigmund Freud) alike ever since its first performance at the beginning of the 17th century.

This edition is based on the First Folio and includes an extensive introduction that examines the origins of the work, the plot and the characters as well as notes on the text, a glossary and a timeline of Shakespeare's life and work.

ABOUT THE SERIES: The Arcturus Shakespeare Editions series brings together many of Shakespeare's celebrated plays, presented with striking contemporary cover designs. Each edition is based on the First Folio and includes an informative introduction, glossary and timeline.
