Hamlet: Prince of Denmark (Graphic Classics)
|Series:||Barron's Graphic Classics|
"The time is out of joint. O, cursed spite,
That ever I was born to set it right!"
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. A new king is on the throne-- and the ghost of the old king walks the battlements at night, demanding revenge. Hamlet, the old king's son, ought to avenge him -- but can he find the courage to do what must be done?
Shakespeare's great tragedy of guilt and revenge is vividly and faithfully retold here in graphic novel format.
Hamlet, the prince of Denmark, is visited by his father's ghost. Hamlet learns that his father has been murdered, the victim of a conspiracy by Claudius, the present king, and Gertrude, the young prince's own mother! Hamlet must avenge his father's murder and expose their crime.
"To be or not to be. That is the question."
