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.
