William Shakespeare's Hamlet​
by Bruce Coville
William Shakespeare

(Based On Work by)
Dial, 2004

“Gore's artwork underscores the sharp contrast between the protagonist's periods of brooding and his angry outbursts. … the mood of the play is reinforced by the overall tone of the illustrations and by the artist's masterful use of shadow. The texture of the paintings, which allows the lines of the figures to both blend into and protrude from their backgrounds, provides a visual sense of Hamlet's indecisiveness.”
