John Lutz via ZOOM

Unarguably one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, Hamlet explores the inner anguish of young Prince Hamlet and his efforts to negotiate the conflicting obligations imposed on him by his conscience and his political role in Denmark. What emerges is some of the most moving and profound meditations on life, death, and human meaning in all of Shakespeare’s work. We will read the Folger Library edition.
