How much do you love Hamlet?  Now that you know all of the gory details, this week we will spend some time dissecting some of the lines from the play.   I bet you can already translate some of it. For example, what do you think I shall the effect of this good lesson keep or neither a borrower or a lender be mean?

Here are some fun links to keep you busy until tomorrow…

    • Ruthie,
      I love Hamlet, too! I am going to try to get a book called Stories from Shakespeare that has mini versions of all of his plays. I think you’ll love it. If you look at our Shakespeare links (under the Explore, Explore, Explore links) you’ll find a link to summaries of all of his plays. I bet you’ll also enjoy Much Ado About Nothing and Romeo and Juliet. Have fun!
