Shakespeare himself plays a large role in the novel, as Bradley frequently identifies himself with the Bard. Hamlet awakens passions in Bradley that set the scene for an intense love affair. Iris Murdoch’s award-winning novel is guaranteed to leave readers with a bang, exploring seduction, sexuality, murder and egotism.
