Who doesn’t love Hamilton The Musical? The costumes, the writing, the actors and, most importantly, the lyrics are amazing! I have probably listened to the full soundtrack more than 30 times and every time I listen to it I uncover a new joke, pop culture reference or witty line. This love for the musical has resulted in “The Hamilton Series” where I am going to create teaching resources, YouTube videos and lessons inspired by the musical.
Now, I know what you’re thinking.
“How does this even link to English Literature or Language!?”
Funny you ask, listen to one song from the musical and come back to this post. Here’s a video of the opening song called “Alexander Hamilton”.
Are you telling me that this incredible hip-hop marvel is not esteemed in pure poetry?
Yes, “Hamilton” is poetry among many other things.
