Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For too long, readers throughout the Federation have been exposed to The Tragedy of Khamlet, Son of the Emperor of Qo'nos, that classic work of Klingon™ literature, only through inadequate and misleading English translations. Now at last, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Klingon Language Institute, this powerful drama by the legendary Klingon playwright, Wil'yam Shex'pir, can be appreciated in the elegance and glory of its original tongue.

This invaluable volume contains the complete text of the play, along with an English translation for easy consultation and comparison. In addition, an incisive introduction explains the play's crucial importance in Klingon culture, while copious notes illustrate how the debased English version diverges from the original, often distorting and even reversing the actual meaning of the verses.

Khamlet, the Restored Klingon Version, is a work that belongs in the library of every human who hopes truly to understand what it means to be Klingon.

Synopsis:

Star Trek fans clamored for The Klingon Dictionary, the bestselling guide to the language of the phenomenally popular alien race. Now, the Klingon Language Institute unearths the most famous play ever written, Shakespeare's Hamlet, in the original Klingon language! This fun, fascinating, and totally unique companion to the Star Trek books reveals the Bard himself to be of Klingon lineage. (How else can you explain his genius, not to mention the resurgence of his popularity?)

The Klingon Hamlet features the text of Shakespeare's monumental tragedy of vengeance, madness, royalty, and original familial dysfunction in the English language we've come to know and accept, side-by-side with the Klingon version — the way it was originally written and meant to be read. Catapulting this classic drama well into the next millennium, The Klingon Hamlet will be savored — and perhaps even performed — by Star Trek fans around the world.
