JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: Symphony #1 by Ludwig van Beethoven, performed by Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Leonard Bernstein)
Why does Hamlet go to the trouble of orchestrating an elaborate ruse
with the play-within-a-play, when the ghost's testimony and his
intuition appear to provide sufficient justification for revenge?
[today's tunes: "Right Place Wrong Time" by Dr. John; "Wrong 'Em Boyo" by The Clash; "So Wrong" by Patsy Cline]
Why does Hamlet kill Polonius? How does Hamlet feel about it? How do the King and Queen react? Did you see this coming?
[UPDATE: Dr. Preston out sick today. Help a friend document his/her recital of the soliloquy and make sure everyone "gets" Act III and documents remaining questions for discussion tomorrow/Tuesday.]
