Description
Information
A loving and lovable young woman is offered by her father, against her wishes, to an older warrior king. Although she learns to love her husband, she loves her precocious son with a ferocity that turns him into a self-centred and vile brat.

A jealous, quick-witted man who stops at nothing, not even the murder of his brother, to get what he wants.

Queen Gertrude, her two husbands and her son, Hamlet, are the characters of Updike's gorgeously entertaining evocation of the palaces, feasts, and life in the late medieval royal house.
