ABOUT THE BOOK
Something about the play remains elusive. Interpretations abound. The question remains: what is Hamlet really about?
HAMLET In Defense of the Faith demonstrates that the play is an allegory, and that it does, in fact, have one clear and discernible message. The message, hinted at enough to be conceivable, is veiled enough to have prevented a charge of treason when the play was produced on the London stage.
Authentication of the playwright's meaning rests on familiarity with two fifth century texts, the writings of Saint Patrick. The parallels between Hamlet and these ancient works are convincing enough that one must suppose they are in the play by design.
This unembellished and straightforward analysis of Hamlet demonstrates the abundant textual evidence from both the play and the ancient texts that ensured the world could know unambiguously what message the playwright intended.
