let me tell you | Let Me Go On
A strictly limited edition of handmade back-to-back cloth bindings is available to buy here “off-plan”. Our editions tend to sell out before we commence making them, so don’t delay! The book will feature some of the more stubborn Ophelian words. Perhaps some words that have never been used before. This long-awaited continuation of Paul Griffiths’ “Ophelian” project joins Mr. Beethoven and The Tomb Guardians in our Paul Griffiths collection.
This Collector tier also entitles you to an original artwork based upon the drawing in the image, a screenprint c. 45cm x 35cm by David Henningham, whose prints have been collected by the V&A, Tate, National Galleries Scotland, and the National Poetry Library. In let me tell you and Let Me Go On, Ophelia tells her own story. Yet she is restricted to the 481 words Shakespeare gives her in Hamlet. As her story flows from this barely perceptible limitation, it hints at her struggle against the constraints placed upon her by her father, brother and the Prince, and her Shakespearean fate.
let me tell you inspired both authors and readers. It was as moving as it was experimental. Our 15th anniversary edition of this seminal novel is joined by a brand new instalment, Let Me Go On. “O” encounters others on a similar journey and explores her fabulous new world.
