Hamlet: Act IV Scene IV

Write a literary essay using the cause and effect pattern. As has been evident throughout this unit, there is a relationship between dramatic works and their target audience. The social, cultural, and economic values and perspectives of the audience also influence the themes and interpretations of a text. Select one speech from Act IV and write a cause and effect essay explaining how it targets its audience. You may choose a target audience of any context or production of the play – the original Elizabethan, or a later dramatic version. If you choose a later dramatic version (Branagh’s version, Gibson’s version, or Olivier’s version) you must deal with all the interpretive evidence of the version you choose.
