Andrew Barnaby Full Professor Lecture

"Hamlet Mignon"


"What great ones do the less will prattle of." Such is the governing conceit of the short-play, "Hamlet Mignon." Four short comic scenes, to be read by UVM faculty members who clearly chose the wrong career, retell Shakespeare's original in the voices of eight minor characters who have their own take on what happened at Elsinore.


Andrew Barnaby has taught at the University of Vermont since 1993. His recent scholarly efforts include published essays on "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Othello," "Hamlet," and Wole Soyinka's "Death and the King's Horseman." His book "Coming Too Late: Reflections on Freud and Belatedness" has recently been published by SUNY Press. His other creative efforts include a musical adaptation of "A Comedy of Errors" for young actors (performed in Burlington by Very Merry Theatre) and the recently published playlet "A Man Had Three Daughters." "Hamlet Mignon" is part of a work-in-progress, "Shakescenes: A Work of Revisionist Theater."
