Subject: Croatian Translations of Hamlet?
This may be a bit of a longshot, since SHAKSPER seems mostly an
Anglophone institution, but does anybody know anything about Croatian
translations of Shakespeare, and "Hamlet" in particular?
I have a Croatian penpal, who reads and speaks reasonably good modern
English but might be daunted by Renaissance English texts, and I would
like to buy her a Croatian translation of "Hamlet" to give her some idea
of the sort of work that I am doing at the moment, and hopefully give
her some insight into why I am so excited about Shakespeare in the first
Does anybody know the names and titles of any Croatian translations of
"Hamlet" that exist, and can anybody recommend a particularly powerful
and effective translation, that stays reasonably close to at least the
plot and atmosphere of the original?
Many thanks for any help that is given.
