Journal Entry

"Like John-a-dreams, unpregnant of my cause,And can say nothing; no, not for a king,
Upon whose property and most dear life A damn'd defeat was made."

I thought this was a very interesting quote especially when Hamlet says, “Like John-a-dreams.” It means a sleepy fellow. It's almost as if this guy, Hamlet, is obligated to do what his father, the murdered king, tells him to do. Hamlet is wake and well aware of the curruption within the kingdom and he has to do something. Mabye Hamlet would much rather be a sleepy fellow. I believe if Hamlet didn't know what he now knows he would do nothing about Claudius and Gertude but unfortunatley his father is boiling and burning in hell because Claudius and during the night he gets to watch his killer sleep with his wife.

I thought this was the best job I did on a journal entry. The rest of my journal entry were pretty bad.
