Ian McEwan, Nutshell (2016), (01.06.17, 20:15)
A version of Hamlet told from the point of view of unborn Hamlet: “Embryos, of course, are all soliloquy. Conversation will come later. McEwan’s garrulous and unnamed Hamlet could have taken his cue from any number of lines from the play, but ‘Oh God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space – were it not that I have bad dreams’ describes his confinement particularly well.[…] We are invited to believe that the monologuing embryo has gained his erudition from Trudy’s Radio 4 habit. McEwan has what seems like enormous fun constructing a voice that is both alive with wild and whirling wordplay and capable of all sorts of antic dispositions.”
Tim Adams, The Guardian
