Schwumpf, There It Is
Today, we look at how a line of verse works.  But in order to do that, we need to know how people think.  And for THAT, we need some German philosophy, and a certain Prince of Denmark.   So sit back, relax, grab some tea and look at the stars, because it's time to delve deep into what it means "To Be." Featuring verse from: Hamlet (William Shakespeare), The Tragedy of the Election of the Citrus King (Deb Victoroff) ACCESS SHOW NOTES to texts, links, and full transcripts: https://www.hamlettohamilton.com/s1e3.html PATREON: http://www.patreon.com/hamlettohamilton BONUS EPISODE: Available early to all $10+ patrons https://www.hamlettohamilton.com/bardtalk1.html  JOIN THE CONVERSATION Facebook @hamlettohamilton Twitter @hamlet2hamilton #HamlettoHamilton #H2H

Content Dictates Form
Why is Hamilton the superior musical to 1776?  What makes Heathers soar, while Mean Girls is just okay?  Why are we talking so much about musicals, when we should be talking about verse? Because the question we're answering today is: When should we be writing in verse?  Well, we'll take our cue from Uncle Stephen Sondheim, who told us quite succinctly: CONTENT DICTATES FORM.
