    I'm currently studying Hamlet for the critical essay section of the exam, I've been trying to attempt a turning point essay for ages now but I have no idea how to approach it. The turning point is Act 3 Scene 1, the to be or not to be soliloquy, I've got a very brief plan/structure that I wrote down as my teacher was speaking but I don't understand how this would be the correct way to answer the question:
    Turning point/Language (this would be the soliloquy of act 3 scene 1)
    The plot
    Characterisation (here I focus on the soliloquy "too too solid flesh" etc
    Could anyone please tell me if this is the wrong way to approach the turning point essay, thank you!
