Ironic And Romantic Readers In Hamlet The Tragedy of Hamlet by William Shakespeare has been written centuries ago It is one of his greatest plays During that long time since Shakespeare wrote Hamlet it has been changed many times That means that now its impossible to read original version of Hamlet so its difficult to tell what was Shakespeares intent of his book But if this would be his original version I would say that he left this book open for readers mind to decide which reader they are and if you are whatever reader still you can learn a lot from this book Now there are several different versions of Hamlet such as First Quarto Second Quarto We were reading The Folger Library Shakespeares Hamlet edited by Luis B Wright and Virginia A LaMar The book gives all useful notes on facing left hand pages and notes are keyed exactly to the text by line number which is helping a lot while reading No matter which version of this book you are reading your interpretation of the book will be most likely ironic or romantic Or there is another possibility that you will be mixed reader It is reader who feels like ironic reader in some parts of book and like romantic reader in other parts Many readers can find themselves as mixed readers because there are a lot of acts where you have to consider your feelings about book Romantic readers are in general readers who like Hamlet as a person They feel his pain by reading the book and they fully agree with his acts with steps he takes They can see him as an Idol of perfect revenge but they will be probably disappointed at the end of the book where his revenge is not very perfect Romantic readers are not persisted by the end of the book but they still think that Hamlet did what he should have done
