Hyperion to a Satyr: Hamlet Act I, Scene 2 - The Wedding Banquet

Hyperion to a Satyr - The Fire and Water Podcast Network's Hamlet Podcast - continues Siskoid's scene-by-scene deep dive into Shakespeare's masterwork, discussing the text, but also performance and staging through the lens of several films, television, and comics. Act I, Scene 2 is too long to cover all in one go, so in Part 1 of 3, we look at the Wedding Banquet, stopping just short of Prince Hamlet's introduction.
