Hamlet: Hamlet's Act III, Scene 3 soliloquy annotation

Hamlet: Hamlet's Act III, Scene 3 soliloquy annotation
Product Description
This worksheet helps students go further into Hamlet's soliloquy in Act III, Scene 3: "Now might I do it pat, now he is praying".

After reading, I hand out this sheet, and students use annotation symbols to go through and mark the text. Then, they explain a little more thoroughly why they put some of the symbols down. Finally, they consider what this soliloquy indicates about Hamlet's state of mind, in connection with the driving question of whether his madness is real or faked.

I have seen great success with this worksheet my seniors in dual-credit English and college Composition I, and their answers to the final question often sparked quality discussion.

Also available as a bundle or individually are:
Selected soliloquies annotation bundle
Act I, Scene 2 ("Oh that this too too sullied flesh would melt...")
Act II, Scene 2 ("Oh what a rogue and peasant slave am I")
Act III, Scene 1 ("To be, or not to be")
Act IV, Scene 4 ("What is a man")
