The Prince of Denmark

Marley, D. K.


Based on Shakespeare's Hamlet, this fractured historical novel in modern English adapts the story of Amleth (Hamlet), the son of King Orwendel and Queen Gerutha of Jutland, as he is spurred to revenge his father's death while soothing his wounded soul in the arms of the angelic Lady Pernillia (Ophelia). While following the story of Shakespeare's play, Marley's tale develops the characters and storyline, taking you into the depths of hearts and minds, as well as adding unexpected twists and turns amid court life in 9th century Denmark.
