Set in Stratford, England, in the late 16th century, Hamnet imagines the emotional, domestic, and artistic repercussions after the world’s most famous (though never named) playwright and his wife, Agnes, lose their only son, 11-year-old Hamnet, to the bubonic plague in 1596.
Award-winning author Maggie O’Farrell’s novel breathes full-blooded life into the story of a loss usually consigned to literary footnotes, and provides an unforgettable vindication of Agnes, a woman intriguingly absent from history.
