Hamlet  Act I, scene iii Study Guide

·      He seems to mainly have his own interest at heart as he berates Ophelia for believing Hamlet.

·      When he dialogs with Ophelia, Polonius exploits every meaning of this word (except for the intimate one) in a series of puns that is the antithesis of the kind, gentle connotation the word generally engenders.

·      This character isn’t clueless, but isn’t really sure what to think.

·      He is denied hope of academic freedom in the first scene, and hope of love in the second.

·      He seems to have Ophelia’s best interest at heart as he delivers a stern and lengthy lecture on having intimate relationships with royalty.

The following are from Polonius’s monologue (I, iii, 115-135)

·      Hamlet’s vows are personified as these.  (Concerning diction, the word is all business…)

·      Polonius uses this in an implied metaphor to show that Hamlet has more freedom than Ophelia, but the metaphor still makes Hamlet a bound dog.

·      The plosive alliteration in this metaphor emphasizes the volatility of youthful passion.

·      The plosive alliteration in this oxymoronic simile hints at Polonius’ explosive rage (rooted in hypocrisy, no doubt…).

·      This word belongs in the terminology of war, not romance.  (The diction also reveals Polonius’ view of love…)

Don Quixote Reading Responses

Reading Responses for Don Quixote

 

1. How is Don Quixote’s decision to become a knight-errant an ironic form of escapism? Explain a current example of this.

 

2. Consider Don Quixote’s naming of his horse, himself, his vanquished “giant”, and his lady. How is it humorous? How is it a warning to us?

 

3. In which way is Don Quixote correct about engaging the “monstrous giants” in “fierce and unequal combat”?

 

4. What is humorous about the episode with the windmills? Does it matter that it’s really chapter eight and not thirteen?

I have to agree with reganotes.

Base your thesis not only on what you love but, also on something YOU won't be anything less than thrilled to research on your own.

By college, if you haven't learned what "figuartive" means, maybe this topic is not a good a topic for an essay choice to begin with.

A graduate thesis is going to even more difficult.

Being that I'm not your teacher, you're a junior and I believe every student can learn something even if they start out misunderstanding something, should you stay with your topic, I strongly suggest you tackle Led Zepplin's "Stairway to Heaven" (it's before your time)

You're obviously, doing this for an English vs music course and, I can promise you if you use others' interpretations of the song, as your content, without making your professor read your own understanding of the song, first and throughout your essay, it will show.

I suggest once you are ready to write the close of the essay, you use the song to write about what impact, figuratively speaking, the assignment makes on your view of yourself and, the world of Classic Rock. If you can do that you can get an A or higher.

That is absolutely the only help I will give you with your question.
