The Play's the Thing

I finally finished my Winter 2015 (yes, that's correct) issue of Nautilus. Amazing articles.

One article that stands is Shakespeare's Genius is Nonsense. This article was informative enough to provide me with a new appreciation of Shakespeare.

Shakespeare's Genius is Nonsense provided insight into how the writing style creates a lasting effect for the reader (or upon hearing the words spoken) because of the links that spread out from each word based upon sound, sounds that resemble it, its sense, its potential senses, their homonyms, their cognates, their synonyms and their antonyms.

The emphasis in Shakespear's writing is not so much on the puns contained therein but on the unexploded puns which retain their energy and create a lasting effect.
