Painters and printmakers have tried to capture scenes from Hamlet on canvas and paper for the last two centuries. Examine three or more paintings or prints that are based on the play, and decide how successfully the artists portray the events, ideas, and characterization contained within the scenes. Students who choose to answer this question should consider composition, color, contrast, symbolism, and other techniques that the artists use in their depictions. If a print is in black and white, what is the effect of this rendering? Remember to include the images you are discussing in your answers. Some background in fine arts will be helpful to you in answering this question. Inspired by Mareike’s thesis, and the fact that tomorrow (8 th March) is International Women’s Day, this post looks back at 18 th century attitudes towards femininity, through depictions of one of Shakespeare’s most famous female characters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
