Eggs with a Side of Hamlet by Leo Cassel-Siskind, Lilly Roman, Alan Li, Paxton Wentzell While we all read up both Act 3 and Act 4, we decided to focus mainly on Act 3, due to time. Act 4 will be discussed next week along with Act 5, the end of our book. In our podcast today, we spent a lot of time talking about Hamlet and the revelations that he was faking his outbursts. We also talked about revenge and its impact on many of Hamlet’s actions, specifically his choice not to kill Claudius unless he was actively sinning. Finally, we spent a chunk of time talking about feminism and how women are treated throughout the play.
