. "To be or not to be" is the famous question that Hamlet poses in Act Three, Scene One of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Explore this speech. What does he mean by this opening famous question in the speech? What events (remote and immediate) in the play prompt this speech? Your essay should include a Works Cited page using MLA style. It will be evaluated for content, style, and grammatical and mechanical correctness. I expect a minimum of two pages –double space - for your chosen question or prompt.
