Shakespeare Hamlet Act 1 Discussion (Audio)

Dear Friends,

Thank you for a great call tonight! It was great getting to know everyone, and I really enjoyed our discussion of Act 1 of Hamlet. I am totally fascinated by Act 1, Scene 1, and I look forward to discussing how the rest of the play builds on the ideas and themes (confusion, uncertainty, fear) that it introduces. And I look forward to discussing how Hamlet himself, whose character we discussed briefly at the end of the call, develops over the course of the play. If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that he’s a pretty complicated human being.

If you missed tonight’s call and want to listen in, or if you’d like to review it, here’s a link to the audio recording. You can listen online or download the mp3 file and listen to it as a podcast on your iPod:

I look forward to our conversation next month!

All best,
