Manga Shakespeare: Hamlet

"For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak," exclaims Hamlet in Shakespeare's most enigmatic play. A fusion of classic Shakespeare with manga visuals, this is a cutting-edge adaptation that will intrigue and grip its readers. In a war-torn cyberworld, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, grieving for his father's death, sees a midnight apparition stalking the castle ramparts. It is the ghost of the late king, Hamlet's father, who reveals the name of his assassin – none other than his own brother. In avenging his father's murder, Hamlet takes us on a journey through madness, treachery and embittered love.   Hamlet is part of Manga Shakespeare, a series of graphic novel adaptations of William Shakespeare's plays. Drawing inspiration from trend-setting Japan and using Shakespeare's original texts, this series – adapted by Richard Appignanesi and illustrated by leading manga artists – brings to life the great Bard's words for students, Shakespeare enthusiasts and manga fans.
