"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"--… (mehr)

A wonderful read and so well written. This was a story of such sadness from the point of a mother who experiences such grief. The descriptions of her tending to her children were at times heart wrenching. I really enjoyed the characters and the story of a family that was left behind. Highly recommended. ( )

Loss and grief...loss and grief...but also...atonement, redemption, and love! ( )
  Eosch1 | Jan 2, 2022 |
So vividly and carefully written - individuals came alive in smallest and most salient details; and the natural world was exquisitely captured in all sense - smells, colors, textures. The author made the atmosphere, in terms of both a roomful of people, and the sixteenth-century indoor environment, real and palpable. Her rendering of childbirth and grief, details of laying out for burial, were absolutely true, real, brilliant and clearly well-grasped and mastered. The wordlessness of grief - she made Agnes' world lose all its beautiful color and become gray. ( )

Not really a "novel of the plague" and barely a novel of Hamnet. There are fantastic moments... my favorite being Agnes simultaneously realizing Hamnet is sick and Judith is healed...but the bait-and-switch of relegating William Shakespeare to a simple absent father is an annoying gimmick. ( )

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.
