What is it about Hamlet that has made it such a compelling and vital work? Murder Most Foul: Hamlet Through the Ages is an account of Shakespeare's great play from its sources in Scandinavian epic lore to the way it was performed and understood in his own day, and then how the play has fared down to the present: performances on stage, television, and in film, critical evaluations, publishing history, spinoffs, spoofs, musical adaptations, the play's growing reputation, its influence on writers and thinkers, and the ways in which it has shaped the very language we speak. The staging, criticism, and editing of Hamlet , David Bevington argues, go hand in hand over the centuries, to such a remarkable extent that the history of Hamlet can be seen as a kind of paradigm for the cultural history of the English-speaking world.

Murder Most Foul is a literary study aimed at a general audience that links and compares several great works of world literature to themes of violence and suffering. Included are Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, and several works of the great Greek tragedians—Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. The gods of Greek mythology, led by the great god Zeus, were instrumental in causing the pain and strife. The author makes the point that death and destruction, war and violence assert themselves everywhere in great works, and thus draws a conclusion that it is part and parcel of existence in all eras of mankind. The title is taken from Hamlet, words spoken to Hamlet by the ghost of his murdered father.
