Hamlet’s inner struggle is revisited in Hostos’s La Peregrinación de Bayoán

Rodríguez Betancourt, Juanita

When William Shakespeare wrote Hamlet in 1599-1603, one of his greatest literary works, he never imagined that it would have repercussions in a distant Spanish colony in the Caribbean. In fact, Shakespeare probably knew little of this new discovery, yet interestingly while reading Eugenio María de Hostos’s La peregrinación de Bayoán, I perceived the influence of Hamlet’s character traits and motivations in the Antillean character of Bayoán.
