It seems that this Ed fellow is doing a whole series. I just yesterday found his Midsummer’s, and now here’s Enjoying “Hamlet”.
I would never have imagined that you could say so much about Hamlet in a single page. Granted it is one mother large page. But he does cover everything you could imagine — scene by scene description, plot and character synopsis, and about a zillion historical sources for what went into the story, as well as people who took the ideas from Hamlet after Shakespeare and ran with them in even more directions.
It’s finding sites like this one that make me sigh and put away my own book project and fall back into “See? It’s all been done already…” mode.
Nothing against Ed – I’m incredibly impressed with this page. I just wish I could do it, too :).
