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.
