First, it's "you"Bigrob said:I believe that during senior year u will read Shakespeare's work "Helmet". can anyone give me a plot summary about it? cuz i hate to read shakespeare and i dont want to fail the class.
Alas, my high school education and memorization of such plays was very long ago ...Dredd said:I see that BigRob isn't the only person in this thread who's never read Hamlet. :lol:
Ah yes I loved Rosencranz and Guildenstern since they do provide the good comic relief that any decent play should have. I recommend that after you read Hamlet to go check out the play "Rosencranz and Guildenstern are Dead" by Tom Stoppard. You kinda have to be in the mood for it but if you are you will find it hilarious and offer many insights on just what they were doing while Hamlet sent them to their deaths.ziggy7483 said:Hamlet PWNS Macbeth dude
Hamlet is a good read compared to your alternatives. You ever try to read David Copperfield by that Dickens character. That one sucks hard. Literary Diarrhea.
We "studied" (read aloud in class and wrote a paper lol) Hamlet back when I was a senior. The play's the thing is good, Rosencrantz and Guilderstern9sp?) are freaking morons, and everyone dies at the end! Woot! If they remake it again, Disturbed could do the soundtrack!
We watched both movies of Hamlet, too. The first one is old with Mel Gibson, the second starred Kenneth Branaugh and was a TNT Original Movie, I think. If you ever get a chance, I recomend the one with Branaugh, you'll not get bored so easy.
The first with Mel was set in your Generic Dark Age, while the second was set in a relatively more modern colorful atmosphere. Reminded me of a popular view of Pre-Communist Russia, but I'm no history buff. It just looked pretty.
And Ophelia is nuts!
