    NHB 210 - Sonnet Exploder (#113)

    NHB 210 - Sonnet Exploder (#113)

    Inspired by the hit podcast Song Exploder, Kevin and Dan spend this episode breaking down and analyzing Shakespeare's Sonnet #113.
    Since I left you, mine eye is in my mind;
    And that which governs me to go about
    Doth part his function and is partly blind,
    Seems seeing, but effectually is out;
    For it no form delivers to the heart
    Of bird, of flower, or shape which it doth latch:
    Of his quick objects hath the mind no part,
    Nor his own vision holds what it doth catch;
    For if it see the rud'st or gentlest sight,
    The most sweet favour or deformed'st creature,
    The mountain or the sea, the day or night,
    The crow, or dove, it shapes them to your feature.
       Incapable of more, replete with you,
       My most true mind thus maketh mine eye untrue.

To Listen or Not To Listen...

Now that's a silly question. I was looking for a good podcast and found this one. Shakespeare? And a pun is the title?! Double yay. From the forst episode, I was having a blast!

These are just two average guys with an above average love of Shakespeare, whom they often refer to as "Will", "Bill", or "Billy", depending on the context. The whit and jokes and very occasional mis-quotes makes this the best podcast I've heard featuring the Bard. They aren't stuffy and make Shakespeare fun, especially if you are a novice.

Thanks, guys, for the fun.
