For this assignment, you’ll look at one of the four Hamilton songs we studied this week and choose three stanzas from it. After you do this, you’ll write three of your own stanzas introducing the reader to you and your voice. Tell us something about yourself, consider the stylistic techniques that you might want to use, and imitate, but don’t copy, Miranda’s style.
After you write these three, write a paragraph talking about the choices you made and why you made them.
Material you need to read :
Read Alexander Hamilton (Links to an external site.), My Shot (Links to an external site.), Helpless (Links to an external site.), and Satisfied (Links to an external site.) by Lin Manuel Miranda. As you click on lyrics, there are explanations and references explained, so please look at these. Some are by Miranda, others by fans, but it helps to understand some of the rhetorical choices.
Listen to Hamilton songs above. The soundtrack is available in many places online.
