Subject:    Hamlet: The Undiscovered Country, Second Edition and E-book


Fellow SHAKSPEReans: Many of you have been kind enough to support and help me with my Hamlet book, and I wanted to let you know that it's just been released in a second edition, and (finally) in an e-book edition.


It’s not hugely changed, but I have worked in many insights and corrections that have arisen since the first edition, many of them arrived at with your help. (Thanks!)


I’m especially pleased with the e-book version, which—because of the book’s many tables and other special text and graphic elements—was a challenging conversion. I think the e-book reading experience may be even better than print (something I rarely say about e-books). This not least because all the laboriously embedded hyperlinks to the play text, and to primary and secondary source materials, are working. 


If you’re among those I address above and I haven’t written to you directly offering a copy of the e-book, or if you’d like to consider it for class adoption, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line; I’d love to send you one. 


Thanks for listening,
