Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are-- (April 29, 2015)

Focus: Do R & G find meaning in their lives? In their deaths?

Guildenstern: for us, not like that. Dying is not romantic, and death is not a game which will soon be over...Death is not anything...death is not...It's the absence of presence, nothing more...the endless time of never coming back...a gap you can't see, and when the wind blows through it, it makes no sound... (124)

1. Warming up with the most important lines from Act 3 (of your choosing, of course)

2. Using past A.P. prompts to discuss the play in small groups

3. Creating your final big blog post and selecting the one you'd like me to assign a 9 point grade in the Literary Essay category (it can be from either semester)

The test is in about a week.  The part of the test that you can really prepare for at this point is Question 3, so work hard on your bedside stacks.  Repetition is key. Repetition is key.
