I’m very excited to announce the publication of my new book, “Hamlet in Haiku: The Bard’s Masterpiece Retold in five-seven five”.
This book “translates” the entire plot of Hamlet into haiku form. It’s an homage to the original, which, I believe, can help bring out the many meanings of this great work. Only $2.99! Make a Shakespearean poet very happy and pick up a copy. Here’s a sample:
ACT 5, SCENE 1
First Gravedigger: Ain’t she killed herself?
. . .Why the Christian burial?
Second Gravedigger: Because they said so.
First Gravedigger: Drowned in self-defense.
. . .Viz:assaulted by water.
Second Gravedigger: It’s because she’s rich.
First Gravedigger: Great folk get away
. . .With everything. Come, my spade.
. . .Adam was thus armed.
Buy a copy! And – if you want to make me REALLY happy – review it on Amazon and include your favorite haiku in the review. Thank you so much!!!
