    I am struggling with how to approach the hamlet turning point essay, the turning point would be the to be or not to be soliloquy in Act 3 Scene 1 and I have a brief outline of how I would structure the essay but I'm unsure if this is the correct way to do it:
    turning point/language (Act 3 Scene 1, here i talk about to be or not to be and how we see a change in hamlets character, he decides to take action)
    plot (how hamlet is genuine and principled etc, the plot has a significant impact on him)
    characterisation (the too too solid flesh soliloquy, how hamlet is repulsed by Gertrude and Claudius and i also discuss the ghosts revelations)
    ending (how hamlets turning point and his decision to act led him to this and how it led him to defeat evil)
    Does anyone have any advice if this is the correct structure for the turning point essay and key scene? thanks!
