Critical Praise

"A whirlwind tour of an imaginatively deconstructed version of Hamlet that would have delighted the Bard as it is sure to delight his admirers."

—Charles Manowitz, renowned Shakespeare scholar, director, critic, and playwright

"An unusual and refreshing look at the early years of Shakespeare’s tragic hero, as seen through the eyes of a bestotted poet. With irreverent wit and a scholar’s eye for detail, Ms. Hermes brews a heady entanglement of unrequited passion, ambition, and genius set in the chaotic brilliance of the Renaissance."

—C.W. Gortner, author of The Last Queen
