Product Description
A companion to my other close readings of this text, this close reading provides a critical, in-depth examination Hamlet's first soliloquy -- line by line. It cross-references and synthesizes figurative language, key words/phrases, striking images, allusions, key themes, word/concept repetition, puns and irony.

*See also my original, peer reviewed close reading of "To Be or Not To Be" and my "Diction Worksheet for Shakespeare's Soliloquies" (used to extrapolate meaning through the Bard's word alone).
