october 23

JOURNAL TOPIC: (today's tunes: "These Days" by the Foo Fighters; "Stubborn Love" by the Lumineers)

Make a meaningful connection between these songs and Hamlet (thanks for the tunes, Daniel!). If you need more structure: describe the role of integrity in Hamlet. Outwardly it seems that Polonius, Claudius, and even Hamlet craft strategies to create impressions and manipulate others to gain information. Privately, Hamlet agonizes over his inability to act on his obligation to his dead father--to be true to his purpose.  What do you think Shakespeare is trying to say about "to thine own self be true"?

1. Journal (it's deep, take your time)
2. Finish reading Act II w/ notes & Q&A
3. Preview of Coming Attractions

1. Work on "To be or not to be..."
2. Start thinking about collaborations for presentations on Acts I & II
