Acclaimed as a major contribution to Shakespeare studies, it’s a radical new interpretation of the most famous play in the English language. By exploring Shakespeare’s engagements with the humanist traditions of early modern England and Europe, Rhodri Lewis reveals a Hamlet unseen for centuries: an innovative, coherent and exhilaratingly bleak tragedy in which the governing ideologies of Shakespeare’s age are scrupulously upended. A wonderful opportunity to hear one of the world’s leading Shakespeare scholars.
