"A thrilling departure: a short, piercing, deeply moving novel about the death of Shakespeare's 11 year old son Hamnet--a name interchangeable with Hamlet in 15th century Britain--and the years leading up to the production of his great play. England, 1580. A young Latin tutor--penniless, bullied by a violent father--falls in love with an extraordinary, eccentric young woman--a wild creature who walks her family's estate with a falcon on her shoulder and is known throughout the countryside for her unusual gifts as a healer. Agnes understands plants and potions better than she does people, but once she settles with her husband on Henley Street in Stratford she becomes a fiercely protective mother and a steadfast, centrifugal force in the life of her young husband, whose gifts as a writer are just beginning to awaken when his beloved young son succumbs to bubonic plague. A luminous portrait of a marriage, a shattering evocation of a family ravaged by grief and loss, and a hypnotic recreation of the story that inspired one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, Hamnet is mesmerizing, seductive, impossible to put down--a magnificent departure from one of our most gifted novelists"--… (plus d'informations)

Only nominally a reimagining of the childhood death of Shakespeare's son and its impact on Shakespeare's works. That's much more context and backdrop color than focus. More so, a story about parents and children and the relational impact of the grief of losing a child.

Well-written and a nice, slow-paced read, if you're looking for that sort of thing. Not a page turner or one to pack for the beach/vacation. The pacing and cadence of this may have even seemed even slower relatively to where it fell in my reading lineup. It happened to come on the heels of The Push and The Woman Upstairs, both of which I read through much faster and are different types of stories. Relative to those, this felt like more of a chore to finish, something good for me rather than a pleasure.

Not the story I thought I was signing on for based on its early reviews, which, if a fault of anything/anyone, is attributable to its marketing and not the author. ( )

Only the most cursory glance at how the death of Hamnet (the son) might have influenced the writing of Hamlet (the play). Characters: cartoonish stereotypes. Relationships: two dimensional. Descriptions: predictable and repetitive. Plot: slow. I am frankly confused by this book's popularity and acclaim. ( )

I was skeptical about this book for two reasons - I try to avoid fictionalized accounts of real people, and I wasn't sure that the tragedy of the death of a child would be handled well. I'm so glad I gave it a chance. This book is beautifully written, and appropriately heartbreaking. I felt like I understood all of the characters involved, Hamnet included, and I felt pulled into this novel. This type of loss isn't something I personally share, and I don't know how well it would read with someone who had, but it was very affecting to me. ( )

If I could give this book 5+++++stars I would!!!!The language flows like poetry, the characterization so well developed and the story superb. I was so blissfully transported to another time and place...yes even a story of the plague did just that! ( )

I'm not normally a great fan of historical fiction but this book changed my opinion.
She really captures the environment, atmosphere, people and their emotions superbly.
Can't recommend the book highly enough. ( )

He is dead and gone, lady,
He is dead and gone;
At his head a grass-green turf,
At his heels a stone. 

Hamlet, Act IV, scene v
Hamnet and Hamlet are in fact the same name, entirely interchangeable in Stratford records in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.

—Steven Greenblatt, "The Death of Hamnet and the Making of Hamlet," New York Review of Books (October 21, 2004)
I am dead:
Thou livest;
. . . draw thy breath in pain,
To tell my story

      —Hamlet, Act V, scene ii

Agnes believes her position, as new daughter-in-law, to be ambiguous, somewhere between apprentice and hen.
The branches of the forest are so dense you cannot feel the rain.
There will be no going back. No undoing of what was laid out for them. The boy has gone and the husband will leave and she will stay and the pigs will need to be fed every day and time runs only one way.
What is the word, Judith asks her mother, for someone who was a twin but is no longer a twin?
... If you were a wife , Judith continues, and your husband dies, then you are a widow. And if its parents die, a child becomes an orphan. But what is the word for what I am? ... Maybe there isn't one, she suggests.
Maybe not, says her mother.
