Great Find!

I've been looking for a breakdown of Hamlet since I read the play in school 25+ years ago. Outsanding podcast. Thank you for your time to put this podcast together.

Packed with insight

His close readings are so illuminating. I often get more from these short podcasts than I do from whole books.

Love this wonderful, deep, exploration of the text! Been listening to it for over a year—sorry not to write a review earlier!
Hanratty is building a wonderful resources for the ages. I recommend these episodes for anyone looking to understand “Hamlet” better, or who simply can’t get enough “Hamlet”.
