The Freud-Jones view of Hamlet is very widely known and probably this centurys most distinctive contribution to Shakespearean criticism. Norman N. Holland, Director, Center for the Psychological Study of the Arts, State University of New York at Buffalo, in Psychoanalysis and Shakespeare

A classic study in the psychoanalysis of literature, Hamlet and Oedipus investigates Hamlets mind as it relates to the general psychological conditions foreshadowed in the Oedipus legend. Dr. Jones gives a comprehensive view of the Hamlet literature and shows how the explanation of Hamlets mysterious inhibitions lies in his unconscious conflicts. The Hamlet theme is itself an old one, and there is a full discussion of the place of the saga in the complex mythological group to which it belongs.
