    Question Does this sentence approve or disprove the this statement

    "I believe Hamlet is a great play, more or less. Any speculation of it and the renascence movement is not to be taken seriously"

    Does this sentence approve or disprove the following statement:

    "There is a link or a connection between Hamlet and the renascence movement"

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is this homework? Note the correct spelling of "renaissance".

    Also, something can either "prove" or "disprove" something. "Approve" is incorrect.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think the Renaissance, being a period in history, should be capitalized.

    Renascence is a possible spelling, though far less common than Renaissance.

    Fair enough. I've never seen it. Well, now I have.

    This Ngram suggests that it is far less common than I thought.

    Thank you for the welcome, I apologies for not introducing myself before posting.

    I am The_User_1010, nice to meet you all :)

    Regarding your question about whether this is a homework, the answer is yes and no.

    I am preparing a presentation with one of my friends, and sent me this message and could not understand him, and I could

    not get hold of him, that is why I am asking.

    Will your presentation be graded?

    Yes, but this sentence and statement were just a conversation between me and my friend.

    I sent him the statement via text and he sent me the sentence via text also.

    I'm not clear what your question is now. Is the sentence he sent you intended to be part of the presentation or was he simply giving his opinion about the play?
