After that, you probably thought to yourself, “They can’t possibly top this.” But we Taylor Swift’d your a$$ and rose from the dead to bring you our magnum opus, our greatest achievement, Every Scene of Hamlet Summed Up in a Single Sentence.
Before you proceed, a few notes:
Some of these slides are more than 1 sentence long, because it is actually VERY DIFFICULT to sum up Shakespeare’s sh%* in 1 sentence.
If a scene is particularly long, we sometimes split it into 2 or 3 parts—but in the actual play, there are no “parts”, so don’t reference them in your in-class essay or you will sound like a moron.
AND NOW, GO FORTH, YOUNG NERDS, AND EXPERIENCE HAMLET LIKE NEVER BEFORE. Because it’s, like, shorter. And there are pictures. YOU’RE WELCOME.
