Reading the text of Shakespeare's Hamlet, you noticed the playwright's use of extended monologues, or soliloquies, to express Hamlet's thoughts and feelings in dramatic form. Write an essay in which you explore the use of this technique in three distinct ways:
- Select one of Hamlet's soliloquies from the play and analyze how it displays his inner thoughts for the audience in dramatic form.
- Compose a soliloquy using evidence from the play that expresses the point of view of one of the following characters: Gertrude, Claudius, Ophelia, or Polonius. Into which act of the play would you insert this additional speech?
- Write a soliloquy for yourself, expressing the central narrative of your own life in dramatic form. Think of yourself as a character explaining yourself to an audience that does not include those who play the most important roles in your life.
Employ your critical skills in analyzing a work of literature, but also gives you the opportunity to apply what you have learned in creative expression of your own.
