For more than 400 years Hamlet has been one of the theater’s most successful plays. More has probably been written about Hamlet, the Prince, than about any other figure in literature, for the play is ostensibly enshrouded in a mystery of words about politics, theology, and morality in Denmark via 17th century Elizabethan England.

This lecture unravels that impediment of memory from clues explicit in the text of Hamlet.

Felipe de Ortego y Gasca is a Scholar in Residence (Cultural Studies, Critical Theory, Public Policy) Western New Mexico University; Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English and Cultural Studies, Texas State University System – Sul Ross There will be a meet and greet directly after the Lecture.
