I’m trying to study for my English course and I need some help to understand this question.
Journal II Drama ALL SHOULD BE DONE IN MLA FORMAT
1. This journal contains a critique of each complete act of Hamlet. Since Hamlet is a play in five acts, your journal will contain five (5) complete entries. You are NOT required to critique each scene in the play. Your critique should cover the entire act.
Remember that the word length for Journal II Drama goes to 70 to 90 words each. However, the format is the same for each journal regardless of number of entries(instructions attached below). Nothing has changed except the word count. Only the Journal I Poetry has a shorter word count for each entry.
Complete journal instructions and examples are in the Journal Project section.
1. â€œHamlet, Act Iâ€ Critique
2. â€œHamlet, Act IIâ€ Critique
3. â€œHamlet, Act IIIâ€ Critique
4. â€œHamlet, Act IVâ€ Critique
5. â€œHamlet, Act Vâ€ Critique
2. Journal III Short Story
The list of the following short stories are the ones that will be required in Journal III. The beginning page of each story is given in parenthesis. (In case of a typographical error, consult the Table of Contents in the class text.)
1. â€œA Rose for Emilyâ€ by William Faulkner (216)
2. â€œA&Pâ€ by John Updike (230)
3. â€œMiss Brillâ€ (235)
4. â€œThis is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizonaâ€ by Sherman Alexie (287)

Possible Critique Considerations (for journal entries)
1. What is the theme (main idea) of the poem, drama, or short story?
2. How does the author develop the theme?
3. Did the author have a political, social, or religious purpose in this writing? What? Explain.
4. Do you agree or disagree with the writer concerning the point he or she was trying to make? Explain why or why not.
5. Do you agree or disagree with the values the writer seems to support in making her or his point? Explain why or why not.
6. If you were rewriting this poem, drama, or short story what you change or add to make the work better or easier to understand?
7. How did the language or culture of the influence or perhaps hinder your understanding of the work?
8. Did you learn anything about the culture, moods, or attitudes of the time the work was written?
NOTE: These questions are only suggestions that you may use to give you ideas about critiquing poetry, drama, and short stories.
