explore your emerging understanding of Self, Other, Nature, or God in relation to your emerging understanding of one or more literary elements (e.g., irony, metaphor – see list of these elements posted in our Bb) as animated in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Your analysis of the relationship between the writer’s use of literary elements and your understanding of Self, Other, Nature, or God must include the following:

• A well-crafted thesis statement, linking a literary element(s) with your focus on Self, Other, Nature, or God situated in an engaging introduction. This statement MUST be highlighted when you turn it in.

• Inclusion of your definition of Self, Other, Nature, or God.
• Inclusion of evidence of your chosen literary elements (e.g., culled quotes) from Hamlet to support, nuance, and/ or challenge the claim you make in your thesis.

• Inclusion of at least 3 academic sources to support your thesis. These sources are to be academic sources such as those you explored when preparing for your Video Critique of Whitman. One of the best places to start is with the Discovery service on the Blume library page.
