Summary
"Style in Hamlet is not intended to explode our traditional notions, but only to take another close look at the play. I try to track puns to their most secred hiding places, to revive significances in the language and in the staging that may have long since faced, and to indicate relationships and inner coherences that may not be immediately apparent to reader or spectator. My commitment is strongly historical throughout -- it is, in other words, to a Hamlet 'possible' at the turn of the century in England -- but I do not tremble at the notion of an anachronistic palimpsest conciously laid on by a modern critic. As much as we may try to work within the meaningful limits of historical truth, there is no way of 'fixing' Hamlet at one moment of time."--From the introduction
