Hamlet Soliloquies Test: Sample Question

1. “How all occasions do inform against me,” (IV, iv, 31 – 65)

Here we see Hamlet abandon his preoccupation with reason in the face of powerful motivation.  Explain this statement using details from the soliloquy as examples.

Answer each question in one or two well-organized paragraphs.  Write all of your answers on foolscap and please skip lines.


For each answer:

Knowledge and Understanding: Understanding of the overall tone and meaning of the soliloquy. (5 marks)

Thinking and Inquiry: Interpretation of the soliloquy in relation to the specific question asked? (5 marks)

Communication:   Clarity and organization of your answer. (5 marks)

Communication will include sentence structure, logical paragraphing, grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Also, the clarity of your expression will be considered here.

Welcome to the ENG 4U page. Here I will post handouts and other important material for students to access.
