Series: Shakespeare Criticism, v. 23. Using a variety of approaches, from postcolonialism and New Historicism to psychoanalysis and gender studies, the international contributors to this volume contribute major new interpretations on the conception and writing, editing, and cultural productions of Hamlet.
A mysterious, melancholic, brooding Hamlet has gripped and fascinated four hundred years' of readers, trying to "find" and know him as he searches for and avenges his father's name.
