John Updikes's nineteenth novel tells the story of Claudius and Gertrude, King and Queen of Denmark, before the action of Shakespeare's Hamlet begins.

Book - James Schiff

In Gertrude and Claudius, Updike has penned a master tale, a slim and memorable volume that, like Voltaire's Candide, reveals the sparkling eloquence and genius of its author. Readers will find the novel an invigorating intertextual experience that may lead them back to their college Shakespeare text as well as to the video store for the the latest film adaptation.
