Question:

What is the best way to improve myself as a writer?

Answer:

Rule #1: Never turn in a writing assignment without reading it over. Upon rereading, ask yourself these questions: Am I being clear? Am I providing my unique perspective? Am I specifically answering the question/task set before me, or am I generalizing? Approaching writing with thoughtfulness, clarity, and brevity (when possible) is the best way to improve yourself as a writer, and will help you gain confidence in the process.

Subject: Shakespeare

Question:

In Act 5, Scene 2 of Hamlet, just before Hamlet's duel with Laertes, Hamlet says to Horatio, "There's a / special providence in the fall of a sparrow. / If it be now, 'tis not to come. If it be not to / come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it / will come--the readiness is all." What do you think Hamlet means by this, in the context of the play as a whole?

Answer:

Hamlet has spent most of the play in the midst of harrowing grief; I think his response to Horatio is indicative of the perspective you can only gain once you have suffered great loss. That is - everything matters, and nothing does. If there is a divine providence that orders our days, our effort to change things is ultimately futile. At the same time, it also suggests someone - or something - is looking out for us, and therefore in times of fear or need (i.e., his impending duel with Laertes), perhaps God is with us after all.

Question:

What was the landmark, Pulitzer-winning play originally published in 1991 that documented the AIDS crisis in New York? How did its publication and subsequent performance change the conversation surrounding AIDS?

Answer:

Angels in America (Millennium Approaches & Perestroika), by Tony Kushner. The publication and production of this play brought the AIDS crisis into public conversation, helping people mourn, process, and heal from this pandemic. It also brought gay rights in America to the forefront of political conversation, and helped clarify many misconceptions surrounding the disease, including that it is possible to lead a healthy and productive life after an HIV diagnosis.
