    Read the last act (right column = modern English) and tell me if you want to keep the word "elected" in this sentence.


    3) Hamlet arranges for a troupe of actors to reenact "The Murder of Gonzago," the plot of which is very similar to the story told by the ghost.

    4) The function of the play within the play is to create two different audiences, the real one and the audience made up of the actors.

    5) The word “rub” refers to an obstacle in the game of bowls which prevents the bowl from taking its right course. It is compared to the obstacle that prevents men from committing suicide.
