This prompt asks students to compose a critical analysis on Hamlet. Students are allowed to create their own prompt, but the sheet provides original paper ideas that fit in a variety of criticisms such as the formalist strategy, biographical strategy, psychological strategy, or historical strategy.
This is designed for an AP or honors English class.
Page numbers are provided to descriptions of these strategies found in the Bedford Introduction to Literature, but can be easily removed.
Links to several articles that can be used in the paper are provided in the prompt. These are scholarly and available to all students; no access to JSTOR required.
