“Music to hear, why hear’st thou music sadly?” – Sonnet 8
With episode 3 going up tomorrow, things are feeling mighty real over here at Podcast Shakespeare. We’ve now created a Spotify playlist, which will be updated each week with relevant songs from – or connected to – the play we’re discussing, or Shakespeare’s life in general. Music is such a vital thread throughout the Bard’s plays and poems, much as it remains a connective tissue of our current culture, so it’s not an area to be ignored when discussing Will’s work.
For now, enjoy countless versions of “Who is Silvia?” on Spotify.
