Sir Trevor McDonald looks at the major quotations, features and themes of Shakespeare's Danish play in a podcast written by a leading English Literature teacher. The podcast explores the role of madness, the importance of family to the plot, Hamlet's desire to avenge his ghostly father's death and his suspicious distrust of his Uncle. We consider the relationship between Hamlet and his mother - loving and almost incestuous yet angry and distrustful - and the effect this has on his relationship with women in general, and the effect this has on his relationship with women in general. The podcast is ideal for both GCSE and A-level literature revision, and makes a great introductory piece for study.
