Hamlet, Prince of Denmarkby William Shakespeare
Synopses & Reviews
John Austen's hauntingly illustrated edition, published in 1922, remains unparalleled among all other treatments of Hamlet to this day. An adherent of the Aesthetic Movement in England that included Aubrey Beardsley and James A. M. Whistler, Austen shifted to a much more commercial style later in his career, and Hamlet is one of the few artifacts of the early pinnacle of his creativity. Black-line plates and ornamental illustrations throughout.
In this hardcover reproduction of a rare 1922 edition, the drama of the melancholy Dane unfolds amid haunting black-and-white images in a style heavily influenced by the great Aubrey Beardsley. Tailpieces and other ornamental designs appear throughout the text.
