For Tuesday’s class, memorize Hamlet’s response to his mother, after she asks him why his father’s death “seems so particular [painful, grievous]” to him.

He answers her in lines 76-86 of Act One Scene Two (Seems, madam? . . . suits of woe.)

Be ready to write or recite these lines.

The spirit of his response: I don’t look like I’m in pain, mother; I am.  You don’t even begin to understand my grief.
