The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet exacts on his uncle Claudius for murdering King Hamlet, Claudius's brother and Prince Hamlet's father, and then succeeding to the throne and taking as his wife Gertrude, the old king's widow and Prince Hamlet's mother. The play vividly portrays both true and feigned madness – from overwhelming grief to seething rage – and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.

More Inflection, Please
While I appreciate the content and the gumption to produce this, Shakespeare’s magnum opus necessitates proper inflection to truly engage the audience.
Thanks for the content
Regardless of what others say, you have recorded this and put it out there. Thank you for your service! I can listen to this classic on my ride home. If you know anything about how audiobooks are produced AT ALL you would understand it is a long and hard process having a few voices at you disposal you work with what you have. If you don’t know how audiobooks work, a narrator usually reads the whole thing doing separate voices for each character. Give this piece a listen and absorb this classic!
