    Of Pentameter & Bear Baiting - Romeo & Juliet Part I: Crash Course English Literature #2

    In which John Green examines Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare. John delves into the world of Bill Shakespeare’s famous star-crossed lovers and examines what the play is about, its structure, and the context in which it was written. Have you ever wanted to know what iambic pentameter is? Then you should watch this video. Have you ever pondered what kind of people actually went to see a Shakespeare play in 1598? Watch this video. Were you aware that wherefore means “why?” Whether you were or not, watch this video. In Shakespeare’s time, entertainment choices ranged from taking in a play to watching a restrained bear try to fight off a pack of dogs. Today on YouTube, our entertainment choices are just as wide-ranging. So you can either choose to watch the modern equivalent of bear baiting (another cinnamon challenge) or you can be edified and entertained by John and Crash Course. So wherefore are you reading this description instead of watching the video?

    looks like john’s taking ann’s thing

    My money’s on Ann.

    None of my RL friends like Shakespeare

    at all 

    I try to tell them about various things-the awesomeness of Hamlet, Macbeth and all that superstition stuff, even “Villain, I have done thy mother.” in Titus Andronicus.

    And they’re just like

    And I’m like

    If they’re allowed to fangirl about stuff like One Direction, then you know what? 

    I like Shakespeare. I really don’t care what they think. 

    (i’m so glad the internet exists otherwise i’d die of…non-Shakespeare. especially PBAB. you guys rock.)

    While Shakespeare tragedies often kill off many of the relevant characters, those left behind to lead the way into the future are interesting too. Here is a discussion of three characters who are raised to power by the end of their respective tragedies: Lucius (Titus Andronicus), Malcolm (Macbeth), and Fortinbras (Hamlet).

    And, with a much pithier statement on the end of tragedies than I could ever muster, here is TheGeekyBlonde’s Hamlet, which ends with her Fortinbras summing up how Shakespeare ends his tragedies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mHQ8te8Rfk
