William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised on 26 April 1564. Thought to have been educated at the local grammar school, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he went on to have three children, at the age of eighteen, before moving to London to work in the theatre. Two erotic poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were published in 1593 and 1594 and records of his plays begin to appear in 1594 for Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. Shakespeare's tragic period lasted from around 1600 to 1608, during which period he wrote plays including Hamlet and Othello. The first editions of the sonnets were published in 1609 but evidence suggests that Shakespeare had been writing them for years for a private readership.

Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. The first collected edition of his works was published in 1623.

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.

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.
