You must quote from at least four of these texts the Aeneid; Matthew, Romans; Consolation of Philosophy; The Prince; and Hamlet. Synthesize the readings with college life. Explain the relevance of Boethius, Matthew, Paul, Hamlet, Ophelia, Machiavelli, and Dante to your “Utopian” college existence. “And they all lived happily ever after” is a fairy tale ending but compare it to Hamlet’s. There, a charming prince, his lovelorn maiden fair, the caring and over-loving queen, and sundry villains are lying dead and bleeding (or already buried) in the final scene. Denmark is a proxy for England, in some important ways, just as the Cinderella story is a fantasy for so many young people today. Hamlet and Ophelia lived in a fairy tale setting with fairy tale conflict and fairy tale villainy. Given your stance on love, justice, and power, how will you define a humane life?
