what are the themes in rosencrantz and guildenstein?Watch
hey i'm doin this book 4 a levels and i really need a grip on it .can you help.i need an indepth study on tom stoppards book.what is he really talkin abt in detail please.
Anyways, I'm guessing you know that the play is based around Hamlet and I'm not really a great swot on the themes of the play, however, looking at my notes there seems to be great emphasis put on the ideas and theory of chance and probability, being lucky or being in the right/wrong place at the right/wrong time.
There seems to be some scribble about duplicity/superficiality and the ideas of self-gain also.
The play also starts to completely merge into the action of Hamlet. The end parts where Hamlet appears on the ship as Rosencrantz + Gildernstern is really an indicator of how the principal characters are about to share the same fate as the principle characters of Hamlet, ie. DEATH lol
Hope I helped! Good Luck! Feel free to message me anytime x
