Subject: Five Things You Don’t Know About Hamlet—In Five Minutes
Hey all, thought you might enjoy the following. (Though most of you probably already know these five things . . . or disagree with them . . . )
Ignite is a forum for people to do five-minute presentations—twenty slides, fifteen-second auto-advance. I put together this one.
You’ll notice all sorts of details and contradictory facts I necessarily skim over or skip completely given the five-minute constraint, but in any case it was fun to do. I’ve gotten some good feedback, lots of people having Aha! moments when they learn some of the facts about the play, the kind that we tend to go on about here . . .
In any case I got to talk about Hamlet to 600 people (and another 49 so far on Youtube . . . ). What’s not to like?
Happy holidays to all,
