Respond to one of the following:
- Do you think Rosencrantz and Guildenstern deserved to be put to death? What alternatives might Hamlet have taken? Examine Hamlet’s reasoning and consider whether you think Hamlet was seeking justice or revenge?
- Why does Horatio tell Hamlet he will lose the contest? Why is Horatio correct?
- Throughout most of the play Hamlet has seemed unwilling to do what he knows he must do. Is it only in the final scene that Hamlet seems fully willing to accept his destiny? What do you think has caused this change in Hamlet?
- Death is personified twice in the final scene: a police officer(by Hamlet) and a hunter(by Fortinbras). Why has Shakespeare chosen these two particular occupations. What other jobs could death, as a person, perform?

Thanks to those helping/experimenting with graphics for shop.snowotherway.org. Progress is slow, but carefully done. What works? 5-6 images of each garment with hardwood background, adjust==>image size 320x240px and 72 dpi, and adjust==>auto levels so white balance looks better. Be certain to name each image according to corresponding “product code.”
Check out T-Shirts, others a piece at a time.
Thanks Braden, Deena, Michael M., Adam M.
Write as quickly as you can and as much as you can using the following list of 4 words in addition to a few spontaneously selected words.
Then remove the listed words from your writing and leave a set of () behind.
Next to each listed word add an “==>”
Shut your eyes, think about a word from the list, let the mind “translate” the idea into an image. Write down an image corresponding to each word.
Reinsert these translated images into your ().
Restructure the piece into poetry. Remove words, add line breaks and spacing.
Do not add rhyme.
