Hamlet Backwards


This semester’s AP English final is on Beloved, a depressing novel enjoyed by no one.

“I need an 87 on the final to get an A in the class,” my boy says.

“That sounds manageable,” I say.

“Not really. I knew Hamlet backward and forward and on that test I got an 86.”

“What is Hamlet backward? It’s Telmah, right?”
