Prompt (303)

Both Hamlet and The Girl represent youthful characters involved in dramatic situations.

Compare these two texts in terms of the ways they construct Youth as a cultural category by identifying and discussing both their SOCIAL CONTENT (i.e., social values specific to their respective historical contexts) and NARRATIVE DISCOURSE (i.e., particular formal techniques, structure).

In other words, how do Shakespeare and Le Sueur use that SOCIAL CONTENT and NARRATIVE DISCOURSE to construct YOUTH as a cultural category?
