Publisher's Summary

How do you get a handle on Hamlet's complex character? What makes for great performances of the play? Professor Rebholz brings a new and compelling interpretation of this great Shakespearean work, offering insights on Hamlet's mysterious actions and inaction and his slow march toward revenge. He also engages in a lively debate with Professor Ryan about ways to perform the play, and the 2 also discuss its religious and political contexts. Both professors have received Stanford's highest awards for teaching excellence.

For more informative lectures about this work, don't miss A Study Guide to Hamlet.

Listen to Professor Harold Bloom's conversation on Hamlet as Everyman.

    "a very old lecture recording"

    I'm sort of surprised they packaged this as sellable content here--it's seemingly a very old lecture, one in which the teacher repeatedly refers to the class handout and other cues that the reader wouldn't have.
