Opinion

From Library Staff

Shakespeare's Hamlet opens in the middle of the action. Relationships have already become complicated and emotions are running high. John Updike tackles the question of how this situation arose and why Hamlet the younger should have just left well enough alone.

When Hamlet opens, we find ourselves in the middle of a big mess. Relationships are complicated and emotions are running high. John Updike tackles the question of how this situation arose and why Hamlet the younger should have just left well enough alone.
