Originally published in 1931, this book contains an estimation of 'the present situation in Hamlet criticism'. Waldock illustrates Hamlet's unique position as a successful play that still provokes real uncertainty about its protagonist's motivation, and examines how scholars have interpreted important passages differently over time. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Hamlet and its interpretation.
