En 12: Monday, 2 May

Today, we read Act 4, Scenes 1-4.  We discussed Claudius' reaction to the news that Hamlet has killed Polonius.  We also get comedic relief as Hamlet is slow to reveal where P's body is.  Scene 4 gives us Fortinbras as a foil to Hamlet.  Remember the motivation for Hamlet's change of heart is the realization that Fortinbras is really fighting for honour, since the land he seeks is an "egg shell."

Please prepare the following parts:
