Product Description
(246 pages, 103,400 words)This commentary provides a comprehensive examination of the play - see "Table of Contents" page in the Sample download for a list of the areas. A major section of the commentary examines the conventions that Shakespeare employed as well as a variety of critical interpretations. The commentary refutes the theory of Hamlet as procrastinator-a man who thinks too much and acts too little-and presents, instead, the view of Hamlet as a man of action, an "Uomo Universale" or "Universal Man" who possesses a variety of attributes and talents that elevate him to heroic status. I am confident that you will find this commentary a valuable teaching tool and resource as it addresses every major issue in the play and provides new and comprehensive solutions to the problems that have plagued critics in their interpretation of Shakespeare's greatest and most challenging tragedy. Many, many tests and quizzes as well as essay and seminar topics intended to stimulate discussion and debate. Included are questions on the play, grammar exercises, several crossword puzzles, a comparison of Hamlet to Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, a discussion of the characteristics of the tragic figure according to the Aristotelian formula, and a graph of the play. After completing the crossword "What a piece of work is a man" and the quotation crossword, class can be divided into groups, each student in the group assigned three or four quotations to explain to the class the context and significance of the quotation to the play. I welcome your comments and feedback.
