Hamlet by William Shakespeare( Visual )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2008, the UK's eminent Royal Shakespeare Company brought Hamlet - Shakespeare's most famous and perhaps most influential play - back to the stage, spoken in verse but with contemporary dress and David Tennant in the eponymous role. No recent stage production in Britain has attracted either the level of interest of the near-unanimously positive reviews. Tennant's interpretation was recognised as defining the role for a generation, and Patrick Stewart - playing Claudius - as a performance of great depth and complexity. In this specially-shot screen version of Hamlet (filmed on location rather than in the theatre), Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles. Dynamic, exciting and contemporary, it brings Shakespeare's greatest play to a far wider audience than ever before."--Kanopy website
