'Hamlet' revision podcast 4: the first soliloquy

Our 29th podcast is the fourth in a series looking at the play Hamlet leading up to the Leaving Certificate next month, and is a close examination of Hamlet's first soliloquy, 'O that this too too solid flesh...', putting the speech in its context and looking at how it expresses the character's deepest feelings about his mother.

At the bottom of this post is our Wordle slideshow of the soliloquies, with performances by famous actors, including Kenneth Branagh delivering this first one. More Hamlet resources are here.
