Summary This Norton Critical Edition of Hamlet features a newly edited text based on the Second Quarto (1604-05). It is accompanied by detailed explanatory annotations and appendices providing important passages from both the First Quarto Hamlet (1603) and the Folio Hamlet (1623). Robert S. Miola's thought-provoking introduction, "Imagining Hamlet," considers this tragedy as it has taken shape in the theater, in criticism, and in various cultures.
