Subject:        Bloom on Hamlet

Harold Bloom, apparently discontent with what he wrote about Hamlet in
_Shakespeare:  The Invention of the Human_ (Riverhead Books, 1999; 745
pp.) has just published what he describes as "a little book" just about
that play:  _Hamlet:  Poem Unlimited_ (same pub.; $19.95; 154 pp.).
He's interviewed, knowledgably and entertainingly by Jennie Rothenberg,
in The Atlantic's online site:

The following suffices as a summary:

Q:  With a play like Hamlet...

A:  The "like" is fascinating. There is no play like Hamlet.
