From the cover: “This is no new “theory” about Hamlet or about Shakespeare. It is the outcome of a line-for-line and word-for-word study of the play in order to prepare a translation into Spanish verse. This study led Salvador de Madariaga to the conclusion that no commentator had so far put forward a consistent interpretation of the chief character, and therefore of the play. A radical change in the generally accepted views on the matter is here put forward; but one backed at every step by direct reference to the actual words of Shakespeare ; and when necessary, to the two chief sources, Saxo Grammaticus and Belleforest.
