This dissertation aims to analyze William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet – prince of Denmark (1603) in dialogue with its filmic transcreation, Franco Zeffirelli’s Hamlet (1990) in order to verify the treatment given to the play’s theme: corruption, madness (real or fake) versus wisdom, incest, and Oedpus complex. On the assumption that for Haroldo de Campos (1994) tanscreating means not only to be loyal to the original text, but it also means to be free to create, which desmystifies the ideology of fidelity and abolishes the superiority of the source text to value the translation and the receiving culture, this research has a political reading of both play and film to go beyond the text surface through a better comprehension based on the historical, social and ideological factors of their productions. After all, the transformations made in the original text to suit the film to the 90’ s audience in another social and historical moment represent “forces that expand or reduce the work” (DINIZ, 2003, p.97). The interpretation method is the political reading in the three reading levels/horizons presented by Fredric Jameson in The Political Unconscious (1992).
