To prepare for the next class’s original-scene exercise, read the side notes accompanying the lines in which Laertes gives advice to his sister, Ophelia.

These lines are 1-51 of Act One Scene Three (1.3.1-51).  The notes appear in the shaded columns on pages 30 and 32.  Read them well enough to understand Laertes’ specific advice to Ophelia, so that you have a firm foundation for the upcoming exercise.
