Compare and contrast The Lion King and Hamlet. What is the same? What is different? How do changes in the characters relationships (i.e. Timon and Pumbaa acting as loyal best friends instead of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern only pretending to be loyal) affect the meaning and feeling of the story?
Discuss the role and impact of madness in the play. Is Hamlet culpable for the death of Polonius? In playing madness, does Hamlet, in fact, become mad?
