Paul Cantor presents a clearly structured introduction to Shakespeare's most famous tragedy. After examining Hamlet's status as tragic hero and central enigma of delayed revenge in light of the play's Renaissance context, Cantor discusses its dramatic and poetic techniques. He considers the uniquely varied reception of the play on the stage and in literature from the seventeenth century to the present day.
