Hamlet III: To be or not to be

Start learning

What is this lesson is about?

Have you ever felt compelled to action, yet unsure of exactly what to do? If the answer is yes, you might be able to relate to Hamlet. In this lesson, we’ll see him through his indecision and inability to take immediate action. 

We’ll see how Shakespeare brings in the character of Laertes as a foil to Hamlet. Through Laertes, Shakespeare presents another version of the revenge character, one who is decisive and not wracked with the types of anxieties that Hamlet is. 

We’ll discuss:
• The struggle over the play’s ending 🎭
• The paralysis of inaction
• Laertes, the true revenge figure 🤺
