Wednesday, December 7th

This is being posted for Dani Harris, because she was experiencing technical difficulties with her blogger:

Today we watched the Olivier version of Hamlet and also the Zafferelli version. In the Olivier film we started with their fencing scene, which was a trap for Hamlet so that they could kill him with the poison on the tip of the sword. The scene ends with Hamlet dieing.
In the Zafferelli film you see the graveyard scene. Ophelia's funeral is there and her brother and Hamlet get in a man fight. Hamlet expresses how much he loved Ophelia.

The homework is to be prepared for Friday with a thesis statement for one of the two questions.
