About the Book

As an instructor of English 102, First-Year Composition, for more than eighty-six times, I have read and taught Hamlet repeatedly. I have come to know the play extensively and, as a result, when we read the play aloud in class I have to stop the students repeatedly to explain various arcane references that are not explained in any single version of the play. For several years I have threatened to do my own complete version of Hamlet; finally, I have. The result is The Complete Hamlet: An Annotated Edition of the Shakespeare Play. It has taken me years of study and application. My hope is that the play will, thus, be more accessible to the general reader.

About the Author

Although he has long been eligible to retire, Donald J. Richardson continues to teach English Composition at Phoenix College in Arizona. The Complete Hamlet is his forty-seventh published work, all available from AuthorHouse. The first fourteen are novels, the most recent of which is Approaching Alzheimer’s. He defines his life through his teaching, his singing, his volunteering, and his grandchildren.
