Publisher's Summary

Hamlet, which dates from 1600-1601, is the first in Shakespeare's great series of four tragedies. In writing this extraordinary play, Shakespeare effectively re-invented tragedy after an interval of roughly 2,000 years - you would have to go back to the Greek dramatists of fifth century Athens to find anything of comparable depth and maturity.
This production features the voice of Anton Lesser as Hamlet along with a full cast.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
