"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"--… (mais)

I hated this book. Such one-dimensional characters (and way too many characters, too). Shakespeare's abusive father John is all bad. Agnes' stepmother Joan is all bad; no drop of affection whatsoever for two children she raised from babies. Shakespeare's mother Mary is a dolt; I never thought less of the two main characters, with whom we're supposed to feel sympathy, than when they literally laughed at Mary behind her back for being upset that her son was moving to London.

A couple of the characters see Agnes not as a mysterious woodsprite but as an imbecile. I thought it was an interesting perspective and chose to see her this way through the remainder of the book, which helped me get through it.

And hate it I did! I wanted them all to get the plague. ( )

wellllllllllll it's not that it's bad because it certainly isn't Bad, it's very good, but it does just barely miss the mark? ( )

Wonderfully imagined story about the family of William Shakespeare, based upon fragments known about their 16th century life in Stratford, England. It is a story less about him than about his wife, Anne (referred to as Agnes in her father, Richard Hathaway’s will, which is the name used in the book) and their three children, Susana, Hamnet, and Judith. I found the writing a little uneven in places, but overall thought it very good. ( )

I would never have chosen this but after seeing a tweet about how this book “ruined me for all other books” I knew that I had to give it a try. Now I am so grateful to that person for I have discovered a new author to love!

I knew from page one that this book would be good for me - I was transported right away to the staircase she described and the young boy walking down it - and it got better from there. Just simple and quiet but somehow so moving and real.

What a beautiful thing. ( )

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

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.
She will take a person for who they are, not what they are not or ought to be. (21 %)
