Product Description
This detailed, advanced handout accompanies my study unit on Shakespeare's iconic tragedy, 'Hamlet'. In particular, the handout focuses on introducing feminist criticism as a lens for literary analysis, and then guides students through using the feminist approach to closely re-read and analyse various important passages in Act 1 of the play.

The handout includes:

1) Detailed introduction to the feminist approach and feminist criticism in literature.
2) Extract-focused close-reading exercises for applying the feminist approach to 'Hamlet', in particular for
3) Act 1, Scene 2 (Hamlet's 'Frailty, thy name is woman!' soliloquy
4) Act 1, Scene 3 (various extracts, focus on Ophelia and her first interactions with her brother Laertes and her father, Ophelia).

Enjoy!
