The essay focuses on the way traces of "Hamlet" have been disseminated in the street art world. The Shakespearean tragedy is appropriated by writers who spray-paint verses and by artists who explore more formal art techniques such as stencilling, printmaking and painting to create large figurative works inspired by Shakespeare’s play.
