Characterisation in Hamlet

William Shakespeare is widely considered one of the most influential writers of the late Renaissance and early Baroque era. Read the excerpts from Hamlet and write a 5-page essay that explores this work in relation to Renaissance ideals. View a videotaped production of the play in its entirety to supplement your reading and to get a more complete sense of story and character development. Consider how the personality of the flawed and unique individual unfolds in the play. What devices does Shakespeare use to win our sympathy for the main character? Does Shakespearesuggest that the individual can make a difference? Of course you will not be able to view the videotape, that’s all cool.
