About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England's Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children--an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare's only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare's working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.

Barbara A. Mowat is Director of Research emerita at the Folger Shakespeare Library, Consulting Editor of Shakespeare Quarterly, and author of The Dramaturgy of Shakespeare's Romances and of essays on Shakespeare's plays and their editing.

Paul Werstine is Professor of English at the Graduate School and at King's University College at Western University. He is a general editor of the New Variorum Shakespeare and author of Early Modern Playhouse Manuscripts and the Editing of Shakespeare and of many papers and articles on the printing and editing of Shakespeare's plays.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pages Falling Out
By Nick Koepke on October 26, 2018
I purchased these texts for my students, and several of them have told me about the pages falling out. They are in different sections of the text, so it's not just the same for everyone. I'm embarrassed of this and the fact that I've purchased these, given them as gifts, and now the binding of the book (after 4 days of use) is starting to fall apart. It's terrible and pathetic. My students feel cheated out of money because the product they bought isn't holding together, and again after four days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Witty Play
By August on September 5, 2020
Hamlet itself is a fantastic read, so I would definitely recommend it (even if you're not a Shakespeare fan, which I'm not).

On a side note, I would also recommend reading Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard after to gain an entirely new and humorous perspective on Hamlet. Or you may even want to read it beforehand to help you get more enthusiastic about having to read Shakespeare.

The book I received is stunning! As other reviewers have noted, it is small (this is because it's a pocket book). For someone like me that has already read the play, it works well--it's aesthetically pleasing on my bookshelf and easy to shove in my bag when traveling. If you need to analyze Hamlet for a class, you may want to get a normal-sized version however.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously large for a paperback book
By Amanda on August 17, 2019
This book is giant! It is practically the size of my computer. I just looked more closely at the description and it does say the book is 11.7 inches tall, so I should have known. But I would never have thought to check the dimensions of a book. I thought I knew what size a normal paperback book is. This is not the size I was expecting. It is not even going to fit in my purse... I am laughing at myself now because it is comically large compared to what I pictured.
