Hamlet by William Shakespeare( visu )
16 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 679 libraries worldwide
This version of Shakespeare's tragedy of Hamlet, prince of Denmark, is presented in modern dress. With a daring and depth few of his American contemporaries seemed set to match, Kevin Kline both starred in and directed Hamlet for the New York Shakespeare Festival. Then, with the felicitous addition of Kirk Browning as codirector, he brought it to TV in a production The New York Times hailed as "eloquent, moving and at times thrilling. The shrewdly edited version uses tight closeups and captures small crowd scenes without a sense of confinement. The teleplay flows with commendable grace from beginning to end, all urged on by Kline's intelligent interpretation." Dana Ivey also stars
