In an informal, conversational format, scholars Alan Dilnot and Sue Tweg chew over several topics common to the Bard’s major tragic works, Hamlet and Macbeth. Examined are the aspects of a tragic hero: external pressures, psychological issues, revenge as a motivation, relationships with supporting characters, the significance of soliloquies, and the moment of insight. Young actors perform scenes or soliloquies (complete with line citations) illustrative of specific points. Grades 9–12. Color. 31 minutes. VEA (Video Education America). ©2000.
