Subject: Hamletworks Site Expanded
Expansion of the Hamletworks site (www.hamletworks.org) has been an
on-going project. Designed and developed by Jeffery Triggs, this Hamlet
site is the work of four contributing editors, including Bernice W.
Kliman, Nick Clary, Hardin Aasand, and Eric Rasmussen. New additions to
the site include a rich and varied set of searchable bibliographies. In
addition, you will find searchable copies of Q1 (1603) and Q6 (the
Betterton Acting Edition of 1676) in the "Editions and Promptbooks"
section. The "Global Hamlets" section now includes essays on Hamlet in
Japan, in China, in Poland, and in Germany, among others. In another
section, the full run of Hamlet Studies is available and electronically
searchable, as are scanned copies of early essays. In the new folder
"About the Play," you will find essays on the dating of Hamlet, on the
performance history of Hamlet, and on visual representations of Hamlet.
In this same folder, there are character studies that include
chronological compilations of commentary from the earliest editors to
commentators at the end of the 20th century. New materials are being
added daily to the line-by-line collection of commentary notes [See
SEARCH HW and BROWSE HW]. If you haven't visited this site lately, you
will be surprised about what you are able to find. General readers,
students, and advanced Shakespeare scholars alike will discover how
useful this database is.
