About the Play:
collector's edition of the classic play by William
Hamlet guarantees a wealth of possible interpretations as
well as teasing us with the promise of new meanings that always seem
to be just out of reach. Playing Hamlet is considered the greatest
challenge for any actor, interpreting the verses which are concerned
with ideas of theatricality and performance, along with the struggle
to discover one's real self.
Thought to have been written between 1599 and 1601, Hamlet relates
the struggle of the individual soul set afloat on a sea of troubles
and madness. Over four hundred years later, with its recurring themes
of death, revenge and the impossibility of certainty, Hamlet remains
enduringly relevant to, and popular with, a modern-day audience.
This handsome edition of Hamlet is decorated throughout with the
illustrations of Harold Copping, and makes a wonderful
addition to any classic library.
About the Illustrator:
Harold Copping (1863 – 1932) was perhaps the most popular
English illustrator of the late Victorian and Edwardian era. He is
best known as an illustrator of Biblical scenes and in order to achieve some authenticity in his work,
notably an illustrated edition of The Bible published in 1910, he
travelled to Palestine and Egypt. This version, "The Copping Bible,"
was a best-seller and many more commissions followed.
