Al Lehmann reconfigures Hamlet

November 02nd, 2015

After thirty-one years as an English teacher, primarily at Caledonia Secondary School in Terrace, B.C., Alan W. Lehmann retired and combined his admiration for the works of Shakespeare with his desire as a teacher to make Hamlet more accessible for Hamlet, The Novel (Lulu 2014), a self-published tale largely told from the perspective of Horatio. The novel opens with the Norwegian Prince Fortinbras arriving at the Elsinore castle claiming Denmark should cede the castle to Norway. Lehmann imagines contemporary dialogue for all the characters as Horatio ostensibly creates a journal that provides insights into Hamlet’s character from an admiring friend. 978-1-4834-2867-3 $30 approx See http://www.lulu.com/commerce/index.php?fBuyContent=16633758
