Shakespeare’s Hamlet and the Controversies of Self

John Lee

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at the beginnings of the critical drama up to 1801. It brings onto its stage criticism both of Hamlet and of Shakespeare in general. This is partly because, in the 17th century, criticism of Hamlet is scarce, and partly to substantiate the argument that Shakespearian and Hamlet criticism grew up together, united by their answer to ‘Who's there’.

Keywords:   Hamlet, Shakespeare, critical drama
