TED Ed - Why Shakespeare loved iambic pentameter - David T. Freeman and Gregory Taylor

Directed this animation for TED Ed.
Shakespeare sometimes gets a bad rap in high schools for his complex plots and antiquated language. But a quick peek into the rhythm of his words reveals a poet deeply rooted in the way people spoke in his time — and still speak today. Why do Shakespeare’s words have such staying power? David T. Freeman and Gregory Taylor uncover the power of iambic pentameter.
