In this lesson, students read and analyze lines 239–332 from Act 5.2 of Hamlet, in which Hamlet and Laertes fence and then wound each other with the poisoned blade. Students also listen to a masterful reading of the conversation between Claudius and Laertes to provide context about the plan to kill Hamlet. Students analyze how central ideas that were introduced and developed throughout the play interact during the play’s final scene.
