  1. James C. Says:

    Summary: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern first play a game of flipping coins. When they remember they have something to do they find a traveling acting group. Next, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern receive a letter from the king instructing them to take Hamlet to safety. However, Hamlet mishears them and thinks Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are trying to kill him. In response, he makes a new letter telling the king of England to kill Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. So, what happens to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern?

    Evaluation: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is a wonderful book. It has comedy from a game made by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern that involves speaking in questions. But it also takes a dark turn when Hamlet switches the letter that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern give to the king of England. I love how they are clueless throughout the play. Readers that appreciate Shakespeare’s style will enjoy this play.
