a) I know virtually nothing about Hamlet, the "Melancholy Dane". I know a couple of quotes, but that's pretty much it.
b) I know that Shakespeare writes in iambic pentameter and that he's an English poet and playwright.
c) Shakespeare writes in a way that can be very difficult to understand or is just something that bores them.
d) Have an open mind and try not to think like a normal high school student and try to actually listen and learn to what Shakespeare is saying.
