by Stoppard, Tom

Condition: Very Good+

Tom Stoppard was catapulted into the front ranks of modern playwrights overnight when his play opened in London in 1967. Its subsequent run in New York brought it the same enthusiastic acclaim, and the play has since been performed in the major theatrical centers of the world. It was filmed in 1990, directed by Tom Stoppard and starring Gary Oldman, Tim Roth, Richard Dreyfuss, Joanna Roth, Ian Richardson, and a host of others, including Iain Glen as Hamlet.. Later Printing. Soft Cover. Very Good+. 8vo.

"A man talking sense to himself is no madder than a man talking nonsense not to himself. Or just as mad. . .Stark raving sane." Rosencrantz and Guildestern, the two friends of Hamlet, spend this entire book playing games, toying about with philosophical points that they can't quite grasp, and desperately attempt to figure out what in the world is going on around them in this terribly amusing and dark play.
