Subject: Query: Belleforest's Hamlet
I have some questions concerning Francois de Belleforest's Histoires
1) How successful was the book? I mean, was it printed several times,
translated, widely read through Western Europe? Was it translated into
English in Shakespeare's times?
2) Is there a URL for Belleforest's version of Hamlet's story (in either
English or French)?
Any help will be welcome.
