Hamlet, Poem Unlimited is Bloom's attempt to uncover the mystery of both Prince Hamlet and the play, how both prince and drama are able to break through the conventions of theatrical mimesis and the representation of character, to make us question the very nature of theatrical illusion. In twenty-five brief chapters, Bloom takes us through the major soliloquies, scenes, characters, and action of the play, to explore the enigma at the heart of the drama, which is central to its universal appeal. Bloom also gives a warmly personal and full account of the play's history and discusses how it has become an extraordinary part of human consciousness.
