The tragedy of "Hamlet", probably the most famous in literature, has become a basic part of the culture of the western world. The problems it raises, of the ability of a man of good will to act effectively upon a corrupt world, have been stated nowhere so movingly. The first English-speaking theatre company to play Moscow since 1917 starred Paul Scofield in the title role in "Hamlet", and this same production was widely hailed during the 1955-56 London season. One of the greatest Shakespearean actors recreates one of the greatest Shakespearean roles for this memorable recording.
