Hamlet is the most famous literary work ever written. Millions of scholarly words have been devoted to it during the four centuries since it was performed. In this short guide, Graham Bradshaw, one of the greatest modern critics of Shakespeare, analyses the play and examines the arguments which have raged between academics about it. He shows what it is that makes Hamlet – which when it appeared was the great tragedy for almost 2,000 years – such a masterpiece, and why it is a much more complex and disturbing play than many of its traditional critics allow.
