Summary
A Danish prince avenges the murder of his father, the king, by killing his uncle Claudius who murdered the king, usurped the throne, and married Hamlet's mother, Gertrude. Hamlet, considered the most complex of all Shakespeare's characters, examines the fundamental issues of justice, guilt, and death. This recording conveys the subtleties of the Shakespearean text in perfect detail, showcasing Gielgud's skilful execution of literature's greatest play. Also featuring the 1954 BBC talk, Hamlet -- The Actor's View
