Product Description

"To be or not to be...that is the question." It's probably the most famous of all of Shakespeare's lines, but unfortunately it's also the one asked by many students in their literature class. Perfect for the non-Shakespeare lovers who want to still be acquainted with the Bard's work, this unique book sets the original play of Hamlet side by side with an easily understood modern translation. An introduction, synopsis, list of characters, character map, cycle of death and reflection questions also lend additional clarity. 257 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

"To be or not to be" confounded by Shakespeare-that is the question.

Hamlet is an action-packed thriller with apparitions, murder, revenge, deception, poisons, and diabolical traps. With timeless themes, it explores friendship, relationships, honor, fate, madness, and more. Now you can savor Hamlet in a modern, easy-to-understand translation that makes reading it quick and painless. Other aids make following the action and grasping the meaning a snap:

  • A brief synopsis of the plot and action
  • A comprehensive character list that describes the characteristics, motivations, and actions of each major player
  • A visual character map that shows the relationships of major characters
  • A cycle-of-death graphic that pinpoints the sequence of deaths and includes who dies, how they die, and why
  • Reflective questions that help you understand the themes of the play

With Shakespeare on the Double! Hamlet, you'll be enlightened instead of confounded.
