Project #34236 - hamlet media assignment

***********************************YOU ONLY NEED TO CHOoSE ONE (1)  TOPIC AND WRITE IT IN PROPER ESSAY FORMAT ************************************

  1. [Music Students] Shakespeare has had a profound influence on our daily lives, ranging from the speech we utter to the music we listen to and play. Several classical composers have used the Bard's plays as the central focus in their compositions. Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet remains popular to this day as are pieces by classical composers such as Mendelssohn in his work, "A Midsummer Night's Dream." As forHamlet, the British composer, Frank Bridge, wrote "There is a willow grows aslant a brook" in an attempt to capture the tone of Gertrude's lament which follows the death of Ophelia in Act IV, Sc.vii. Listen to the piece by following the link below and then comment on how Frank Bridge achieves the desired effect by examining the rhythm, tempo, key signature and orchestration in his work:
  1. Examine paintings that are based on the play, Hamlet, and decide how successfully the artists portray the events and ideas contained within the play. Many of the most familiar paintings were produced in the nineteenth century, so looking at works by Delacroix, for example, may be a helpful place to start. Examine three paintings and include the images in your answer.
  2. Compare two film versions of Act IV in Hamlet by examining the Mel Gibson and Kenneth Branagh. Decide which production is more successful by discussing such topics casting, editing [which scenes are edited in or out] and time setting as well as other concepts that you feel are worth analyzing.
  3. Pick out Hamlet's soliloquies throughout the play. Is there a pattern in what Hamlet says about himself and his dilemma? Support your interpretation using the text.
