Hamlet Roundtable

Just so nobody misses a passing reference in the comments, I wanted to make this item a post of its own.  Nigel Beale is hosting a “Hamlet roundtable” on Thursday of this week featuring four “prominent lit bloggers”.  I’m not really sure what prominent means in this case, but they are: http://wutheringexpectations.blogspot.com/   (Amateur Reader) http://fernham.blogspot.com   (Anne Fernald) http://www.sarahweinman.com/confessions/ (Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind) http://www.edrants.com/ (Edward Champion’s Filthy Habits)   They do each appear to reference Shakespeare frequently, although I’m sure how often they are writing specifically *about* Shakespeare.  I think I may have linked the Idiosyncratic Mind one once or twice. Anyway, sounds like it could be worth a watch.  They do appear to be a fairly deep lot (at least, relative to this blog), so your mileage may vary.

One thought on “Hamlet Roundtable

  1. Mr Misery hat on:

    Another Hamlet scramble. I get very suspicious, especially at this end of the 20th century (ie we are out of it) that the 18/19th Centuries’ obsession with Hamlet persists.
    I partly blame the schools arcane curriculums (well, always a good start – and deliberate speling).
    Such an awful, incomplete text; such misunderstanding and twisting of character to fit petty teenage angst – such a low level intellectual exercise.
    No wonder Shakespeare is a major league turn off.
