Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' and Tom Stoppard's 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead' are both concerned with change and the lack of change. This paper looks at images of transformation within each play, and uses transformation as a way of thinking about the relationship between the plays, focusing on how this might be perceived by audiences.
