Hamlet

    By

    This is a lively retelling of Shakespeare's "Hamlet". Follow the quick-witted Danish prince as he carries out his plan to avenge his father's death, from the play that catches the king's conscience to the gripping and bloody finale. This engaging story is presented as an exciting and fast-paced graphic novel which remains faithful to William Shakespeare's original text. A major world classic made accessible even to reluctant readers. A straightforward narrative in modern English accompanies key excerpts from Shakespeare's original dialogue, and difficult words and phrases are explained as they occur. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling. Endmatter provides information about the author, the historical background to the period in which the author lived and a timeline of world events that places the work in its historical context.
