Question:

What is the significance of the play-within-a-play in Shakespeare's Hamlet?

Nancy M.
Answer:

Understanding the play-within-a-play is crucial to understanding Hamlet's vacillation in murdering Claudius, and ultimately predicts the outcome of the play proper. This is evident through the analogy formed between players onstage and Hamlet as the facilitator of action, the players' discussion of a scene they had previously enacted, and how the plot of the play-within-a-play is constructed to parallel the events of Claudius' murder.

Question:

What makes a good thesis statement?

Nancy M.
Answer:

A good thesis statement has two parts: an observation, and an argument. The observation is a pattern noticed in the text - this pattern is often a literary element. For example: In The Sound and the Fury, Faulkner couples stream of consciousness narration with discussions of time. The argument is the "so what," or, why the observation is important. For example: Faulkner's pairing of content and narration style suggest that characters in the novel struggle to maintain a grasp over time and order.
