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.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is massive!
By Emilio Vazquez on May 29, 2020
The regular paper back version of this book is HUGE. it’s basically the size of a ruler. If you are wanting to read this out in public and not gather a bunch of attention or look ridiculous go with mass paperback or the hardcover. If your eyesight is not the best and you need bigger text this is a decent option. I will say that with this paper back I have not had any issues with pages falling out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edição completa
Reviewed in Brazil on July 26, 2020
Esta é uma avaliação da edição Hamlet: Revised Edition, The Arden Shakespeare.
Da obra em si, só digo que é recomendadíssima. Uma das grandes tragédias de Shakespeare, a preferida de muitos. Não é à toa que praticamente todo mundo conhece pelo menos uma citação da peça.

Essa é uma edição do Segundo Quarto de Hamlet, ou seja, da maior versão da peça, e no primeiro apêndice estão os trechos que aparecem exclusivamente no Primeiro Folio (outra versão). É a edição mais completa e ideal para quem quer ler Shakespeare em inglês. Tem muitas notas explicativas, no geral elas ocupam mais da metade de cada página. Só a introdução tem umas 150 páginas e traz bastante informação útil, assim como os apêndices, abordando o lado teatral e o literário, além de adaptações da obra. São tantas explicações, algumas bem aprofundadas, que talvez quem queira apenas ler a peça "pura" não vá gostar. Antes de comprar, leve em conta que metade das mais de 600 páginas dessa edição é de textos de apoio, sem contar o espaço que as notas ocupam. Mesmo assim, posso dizer que nenhum esclarecimento é inútil e que acabei lendo com muito interesse até os apêndices que pensei que seriam um pouco maçantes.
É bom que o nível de idioma do leitor seja de intermediário a avançado, mas não é preciso ter medo do inglês arcaico, as notas avisam quando o sentido de uma palavra mudou ou qual a sua forma atual e explicam o significado de expressões da época.
