    Question Difficult sentences

    Good day,
    For school we have to read a part of a text about Shakespeare and explain it to class, but it's stuffed with difficult sentence and I don't understand much of it... So I hoped you could help me out :) Well the sentence I've been having difficulties with is the following: "Hamlet imagines 'the noble dust of Alexander (the Great)' being used 'to stop a bunghole', and he forces himself to see the skull beneath the skin." It's especially about "the skull beneath the skin". Do you have any idea what this could mean? I know you don't really have the context, but some help would be much appreciated!

    I thank you in advance

    Greets, reinebout

    Re: Difficult sentences

    We don't help with homework, reinebout.

    However, there's plenty of information of this kind available on the internet, so get googling — that's what your classmates will be doing.
