Hyperion to a Satyr: Hamlet Act I, Scene 2 - Enter Hamlet

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, comics and even a rock opera. In Part 2 of Act I, Scene 2, we look at Hamlet's entrance, stopping just short of Horatio finding him at the end of his first soliloquy.
