I can't relate to that article. It doesn't cite any sources at all. 20:47, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Act One, Scene 5 (The ghost issues his commands to Hamlet) is largely missing!

I've added Act I, scene V. Kohrar[Leo]

This looks like a Folio version, but which one is not stated. The entire page needs a rewrite to bring it in line with whichever version is used.


Which source are we basing our version off of? Psychless 19:57, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

This is the old and first version put on the Internet in plain-text. It is notoriously inaccurate and should not be recommended for any academic use.

Is that answer a joke? If someone wants to take the time, it would probably be good to synchronize the text with Project Gutenberg's released 2000-07-01. Although that might require inclusion of Gutenberg's small print! statement? Googlebooks offers several editions including: The Tragedy of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark, edited by Jack Randall Crawford, Yale University Press, 1917, Digitized Feb 9, 2006 Cuvtixo (talk) 15:10, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
It's not considered to be acceptable and most scholars believe it to be an edition of the play trascribed from memory by one of the players. Most modern day editors synchronize the second quarto and the first folio, the latter of which has some notable omissions, and is thought to have been written up with the performance in mind.

Line numbers[edit]

This is a valuable source. It is currently rescuing me since I left my version of Hamlet in school. However, it does need line numbers.-- 00:31, 9 June 2008 (UTC)


It seems the format is breaking searches on quotes from the text. cygnis insignis 15:01, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
