"As the ultimate example of the Romantic artist, William Blake made radical developments in art technique to communicate his vision. However visual art was just one facet of his achievement. In his famous illuminated books, Blake combined painting, engraving and poetry, some of which are now the most famous in the English language. However, Blake's visual art can be far more readily appreciated, and pictures such as The ancient of days remain a powerful testimony to the genius of this multi-talented artist."--Container

Analyzing key scenes, scholars Russell Jackson and Stanley Wells of Stratford-upon-Avon offer insights into the underlying meaning of Hamlet's eloquent soliloquies, as well as the play's eight violent deaths, adultery, ghostly haunting, and ultimate tragic end. Death and revenge are explored as major themes of the work, as well as Shakespeare's playful inclusion of comedic relief. An analysis of Hamlet's relationships with his mother and Ophelia provides interesting insights into his multifaceted character."--Description provided by Films Media Group
