Wednesday, November 6th Period 1

Today in class we began reading Act 4 of Hamlet, and made it up to Scene 5 ending at the interaction between Laertes and Claudius. If absent, you may want to catch up on that reading so that you will be caught up for Friday. 

For homework: Just another reminder that Life of Pi Essay redos are due On Friday. Make sure you have met with Mrs. Smith before submitting your final copy. Make sure you staple a copy of the original to the newly revised version when you turn this in. Also keep reviewing Acts 3 and 4 for Monday's quiz, it's going to cover a lot of information. 

Important questions to think about during the reading are:
  • Act 4: Purpose behind short scenes?
    • Scene 1-4
      • Does the queen keep her promise?
      • Hamlet’s treatment of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern?
      • Denmark’s feelings regarding Hamlet
      • Is Hamlet aware of the King’s plan? How has the King’s plan changed since Act 3?
      • Comparison of Hamlet and Fortinbras? Man of action v. inaction?
      • Role of Honor?
