The Folger Libray edition is very useful for students who are unfamiliar with Elizabethan language, customs, and other oddities. Students find the edition easy to use and helpful.

This screenplay, introduction, and film diary for the Kenneth Branagh production was just fascinating. It's the entire text of Hamlet as a film script, complete with film shots and stage directions. Very interesting.

This is part of the Pendulum Illustrated Series. It is perfect for high school students. The book is a comic version of the story. Yet, famous quotes are often left intact as written by Shakespeare himself. Includes vocabulary list and discussion questions at the end of the book.
