Using the verse
John Barton guides members of the Royal Shakespeare Company in a discussion and dramatization of Shakespeare's use of blank verse. The actors discover how Shakespeare uses antithesis, short lines, end-stopped lines and pauses in the middle of a line, and why Shakespeare's lines sometimes mis-scan.
