By Marvin Rosenberg
Literary Criticism | Reference
University Press Copublishing Division | University of Delaware
In this work, Rosenberg insists again and again that only the individual reader or actor can determine Shakespeare's design of Hamlet's characterand of the play. To interpret Hamlet's words and actions at the many crises, the reader needs to double in the role of actor, imagining the character from the inside and observing from the outside. Winner of the Theatre Library Association Award for 1993.
