    One thought on “The Klingon Hamlet

    1. Robert on said:

      How fun to have a parallel edition with the English text of Hamlet on the left page and the corresponding Klingon text of Khamlet on the right page Then in the back are the textual notes because when the humans stole the work for themselves, they made various changes to fit peculiarities of human culture Face it, humans are wimps compared to Klingons And humans have no sense of operatic drama.As far as the story goes, this is a tale in which nearly all of the characters are supposed to be noble, [...]

      To enjoy this book, you must already enjoy two things Shakespeare and Star Trek Those not liking need not bother For those with taste, however, this book is immensely enjoyable You don t necessarily need to have already read Hamlet to enjoy it, though that does help You also don t have to understand Klingon fluently, though that would help For the record, I don t know the Klingon language fluently just a few words and phrases This book goes beyond just translating the classic play from one langu [...]

      If Klingons lived exactly as it says in the book, whole race must be dead o But it gives a look to different culture with different values than others and it is always good to understand and accept these small differences and do not try to change them.

    5. André on said:

      English translation on the left side, Klingon original on the right I indeed began to read a few pages in Klingon and must say that it s quite a good translation in my opinion I also like how the names are klingonified.

    6. Noah Bogart on said:

      A pretty excellent rendition of Hamlet The Klingon is a bit rough, as the translation is older and lacking words we have now, but a fun read.

    7. Yael Mccue on said:

      A must own for the Shakespearean Trekkie Also a great beginner s tool to help dive into the Klingon mind

    8. Jenni Frencham on said:

      I especially love the notes at the end Were I still teaching high school English, this book would be on my shelf.

    9. Carly on said:

      Worth every penny The cover art is phenomenal, the introduction is hilarious, even the translations of the character names are funny taH pagh taHbe

      Funny, but the joke wears off quickly Luckily, the translated English text is also included, so you re reading a great piece of literature anyway.
