Read full description of the books:



Shakespeare's Hamlet is not a wholly original story, but is one of many later versions of the legend of "Amleth," by the great Danish historian Saxo Grammaticus, written four centuries before Shakespeare. Saxo's tale is a highly entertaining adventure in its own right and provides insights into the creative processes by which an old, pagan legend evolved to strike fire in the Christian age of Elizabethan theater.

Søren Filipski's accurate new translation of "The Revenge of Amleth" gives a complete selection of the Amleth legend, including Amleth's often omitted adventures in Britain. Also included is an historical introduction by the translator, tracing Saxo's influence on Shakespeare's contemporaries, with exhaustive citations of every Elizabethan reference to earlier versions of Hamlet, along with the full text of Francis Belleforest's "Hystorie of Hamblet," an influential pre-Shakespearean adaptation of the same story.
