From the publisher

Ophelia uses the words Shakespeare gave her to tell her own story. Her account flows solely from the 481 words she speaks in Hamlet. This constraint hints at Ophelia's struggle against the limits placed upon her by her father, brother, Hamlet, and Shakespeare. First published in 2008 to great acclaim, let me tell you is a "hymn to the human" (Peter Hughes, 10th Muse) that inspired 'the greatest classical composition of the 21st century' (The Guardian on Hans Abrahamsen's song cycle after let me tell you). From the author of Mr. Beethoven (The Goldsmiths Prize 2020 shortlist; The Walter Scott Prize 2021 longlist), and The Tomb Guardians ("Brilliant and witty" - Rowan Williams)
