Ap21/16 Our Pre-Reading Discussion of Hamlet Topics – for Ruby who was missing!
Before we dig into reading this great play, you did some online research to develop a pretty thorough understanding of the background, characters, plot events and other elements included in this play. Why did you do that? Because being able to understand 450 year old literature isn’t as important as being able to understand the plot elements and deeper concepts within the story itself.
The following recordings are for Ruby – it’s our review and discussion of what was found in this pre-reading inquiry searching.
We’ll be reading the play using the No Fear Shakespeare that shows the old text version beside a modern translation. You can find the link to it here. Make sure you keep track from class to class the page/website we left off from.
