“To be, or not to be—that is the question.” So begins Hamlet’s famous soliloquy. Almost too famous, right? You’ve heard this phrase and heard it spoofed in pop-culture since you were small. It means almost nothing. Yet, if if you can look at it new, you see that it is the great human question, the underpinning to our whole lives, the single truth both of Hamlet’s character and of the play itself. Hamlet asks: “Should I even live given these circumstances in my life? And if I do live, what does it mean for me to live?”
The Youngers, in Lorraine Hansberry’s play “A Raisin in the Sun,” must also answer these questions for themselves, and like most American families, must make hard choices about living—What will we do now? Where will we make a life? What does it mean to be?
Think about the idea of “being” as you delve into the questions below.
Begin by reviewing the Module 4 Exploration, which offers a brief overview of drama.
Read either Shakespeare’s Othello or Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun.
With respect to the play you’ve chosen, reflect on 3 of the following questions in your post:
Why did you choose the play you did?
How do the aspects of written drama (plot, theme, characters, dialogue, rhythm of language) make a story come to life?
Do you think plays are easier to read or harder to read than fiction? Explain and support your answer, using the play you chose and one of the stories we read earlier in the course.
In 2021, “being” feels particularly important as we address a variety of social and economic challenges. How do these plays help you understand your own state of being in the context of our world right now—the choices you make and have to live with, and/or the way you create your life to make meaning? Do you see yourself in Hamlet or one of the Youngers?
Scholars across the decades have argued that reading drama is important for our emotional growth, because we enter the lives of the characters so completely through their dialogue. We feel what they feel, resolve what they resolve, or end tragically with them. The dramatic term for this is catharsis, which means emotional release. Do you agree or disagree? Is this still true of drama, or are other genres of literature more conducive to catharsis?
As you reflect on these questions, be sure to support your response with textual evidence and examples, that is, details and quoted passages from the play you chose. Point out lines/words that you appreciate, tell us why.
Ideally, your post should consist of 3-4 well-developed proofread paragraphs.
Be sure to make use of proper MLA style.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
