In this paper I will share three different views and provide my own interpretation of Hamlet’s sanity. There are many examples of times where Hamlet seems truly insane. We have the time when he is talking with Polonius in the castle, after the King, the Queen, and Polonius were discussing the love letter that Hamlet wrote to Ophelia. Hamlet walks in reading a book, and Polonius asks “What do you read, my lord?” Hamlet replies with “Words, words, words.” “What is the matter, my lord” “Between who?” “I mean the matter that you read, my lord.” (2.2.192-197) In the time that this play is

Nevertheless, these presentations provided me a general idea of what to search for and include in my close reading notes for Twelfth Night.

However, most often teachers and students conveniently skip over a glaring detail: Nick’s sexuality. The Great Gatsby is believed to be heavily influenced by Fitzgerald’s life, including, perhaps, his struggle with his own sexuality.

As a student of Esko High School, I have come to notice that almost every year there is at least one project or paper that everyone dreads. Freshman year is the three-hundred word vocabulary project; junior year is the American author paper and senior year is the infamous I Search Paper.

When I was asked to go home and think of a few words that I might like to write about I made sure to chose words that I could relate to.
