    " <sub> while i do find shakespear engaging, that is once the teacher translates of course (god bless sparknotes). However i find it rushed, and lengthy.
    I much preferred Othello. "

    " You can't see/read this play enough. "

    " This edition is really great for teaching Hamlet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 5/21/2011

    " Perhaps my favorite Shakespeare play. The subject of many papers, Hamlet is one of the most complex characters in all of literature. He is tragic, funny, and lovable. The characters, plot, and writing are all magnificent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/18/2011

    " not nearly as good as Macbeth. i was disappointed with it after all the hipe ive heard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 5/17/2011

    " Another of the few overhyped plays of Shakespeare. Didn't really live up to the hype, but overall, it was a satisfactory read.
    Good to finally understand the much referenced "To be" speech. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaisa | 5/17/2011

    " The only part of this play that I really don't like is when Polonius rambles on and on to Laertes about how he should act.. I'm ashamed to say I usually skip it, as well as when Laertes talks to Ophelia about Hamlet.. that entire thing actually.

    OH I'M SO LAZY. "

    " INSECT what are the school thinking? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/15/2011

    " This play was the entire focus of my senior year A.P. Lit class. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mercedes | 5/15/2011

    " This play was a great read and I only wish I could have seen this performed. Reading Hamlet's third soliloquy for the first time also made me fully analyze the depression and anxiety behind the words which is often misinterpreted as a simple question and answer session with himself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shane | 5/15/2011

    " Shakespearean perfection... Arguably the greatest play of all time... Get it Bill! "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
