Prose Pointers

[from last Monday's class]

In experimenting with different ways to read our lines, Brett has advised us to pay attention to the ways in which Shakespeare "organizes" his prose...

1. Verse
2. Syntax
3. Rhythm

Is your syntactic reading sounding stale?
Are you having trouble figuring out when to breathe?
Try reading line by line, according to the verse.

...if you pay heed to all three aspects...your voice will modulate and "act" all by itself! amazing!
