    Meeting of minds by Steve Allen( file )

    Conceived and developed by Steve Allen, the award-winning PBS-TV series Meeting of minds brought together the most provocative figures of history for conversation and conflict. William Shakespeare is the featured guest on this installment, which breaks the pattern set in the earlier shows by surrounding the famed playwright not with other illustrious historical figures, but with the fruits of his own imagination. Following a brief and only marginally revealing discussion of his early life, Shakespeare is joined by the Dark lady of the sonnets, Hamlet, Romeo, Othello and the Ghost of Hamlet's father. Expounding on the theme of love, the most enigmatic and compelling of Shakespeares characters challenge each other and their mutual creator to resolve long-standing controversies about their identities and inner conflicts

    Looking for Hamlet by Marvin W Hunt( Book )
    1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
    Setting itself apart from the usual discussions about Hamlet, Hunt here demonstrates that Hamlet is much more than we take him to be. Much more than the sum of his parts--more than just tragic, sexy youth and more than just vain cruelty--Hamlet is a reflection of our own aspirations and neuroses. This book investigates the many searches for Hamlet, from their origins in Danish mythology through the complex problems of early printed texts, through the centuries of shifting interpretations of the young prince to our own time, when Hamlet is more compelling and perplexing than ever before

    "In this useful guide, Paul Cantor provides a structured introduction to Shakespeare's most famous tragedy. Cantor examines Hamlet's status as tragic hero and the central enigma of his delayed revenge in light of the play's Renaissance context. He offers students a discussion of the dramatic and poetic techniques used in the play. In the final chapter he deals with the varied reception of Hamlet on the stage and in literature generally from the seventeenth century to the present day."--Jacket

    Hamlet in his modern guises by Alexander Welsh( Book )
    1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
    "Focusing on Shakespeare's Hamlet as foremost a study of grief, Alexander Welsh offers an analysis of its protagonist as the archetype of the modern hero. For over two centuries writers and critics have viewed Hamlet's persona as a blend of self-consciousness, guilt, and wit. Yet in order to understand more deeply the modernity of this Shakespearean hero, Welsh first situates Hamlet within the context of family and mourning as it was presented in other revenge tragedies of Shakespeare's time. Revenge, he maintains, appears as a function of mourning rather than an end in itself. Welsh also reminds us that the mourning of a son for his father may not always be sincere. This book relates the problem of dubious mourning to Hamlet's ascendancy as an icon of Western culture, which began late in the eighteenth century, a time when the thinking of past generations - or fathers - represented to many an obstacle to human progress." "Welsh reveals how Hamlet inspired some of the greatest practitioners of modernity's quintessential literary form, the novel. Goethe's Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, Scott's Redgauntlet, Dicken's Great Expectations, Melville's Pierre, and Joyce's Ulysses all enhance our understanding of the play while illustrating a trend in which Hamlet ultimately becomes a model of intense consciousness. Arguing that modern consciousness mourns for the past, even as it pretends to be free of it, Welsh offers an explanation of why Hamlet remains attractive to this day."--Jacket

    Called back to Denmark following his father's death, Hamlet is shocked to find that his mother has married his uncle Claudius, who has been crowned King, despite the fact that Hamlet was his father's heir to the throne. Suspicious of foul play, Hamlet arranges a play that recreates the murder, as it was told to him by his father's ghost, and becomes convinced that Claudius was indeed the murderer. Hamlet waffles between a desire for revenge and disgust with his desire, and in the process, alienates his girlfriend Ophelia, who commits suicide. Claudius plots with her brother to kill Hamlet, but accidents ensue and in the end, Claudius, Ophelia's brother, Hamlet's mother, and Hamlet are all killed
