- [[http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-existential-angst.htm A pop encyclopedia source]]
- [[http://philosophy.livejournal.com/1696807.html Philosophy Live Journal]]: Part of being an existentialist is feeling an anguish/anxiety/abandonment as a result of taking human free will seriously. The responsibility entailed in making a decision is held by the decider alone, so existentialists feel as if they are carrying the burden of all of humanity (seeing as each individual's decision shapes the future of all humanity, or existence precedes essence). True freedom and existential anxiety come hand in hand.

Additions:
The firmament = sky, but the firmament is more than the sky in Elizabethan conception:
[[http://www.kjvbible.org/firmament.html the firmament is fundamental - the first thing created in Genesis]], and it separates the waters above from the waters below: heaven from earth, rain from sea.
[[http://www.internetmonk.com/wp-content/uploads/genesis_cosmology.jpg it is a physical place]], and here is a diagram illustrating where it sits in relation to other elements: waters above, occasionally pouring in through the floodgates. A set of contemporary (now dead) metaphpors.
a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Scheme_of_things1475.gif cosmology]], to color in if you're interested. The firmament separates the planets, stars, moon, and Earth from God and the angles.
Now read it again

Additions:
Striking is what uses the soliloquy can be put to. Some classic repurposing:
- The soliloquy is modern enough to become a song in Hair, 1968. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fstxNFdQWZQ YouTube audio]]. BUT in a 1968 repurposing, the women (!) are singing not about melancholy but about their boyfriends.
- Capt Picard uses an extract to one-up Q in TNG: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8205kJSig4A "What Hamlet says with irony I say with conviction"]], says Picard - once again repurposing the soliloquy to his own ends.
- Kenneth Branagh whispers the lines intimately to R and G during a long dolly shot: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmeZKaCz4lM clip]]. The whole scene is carefully design: you got your snow (aka winter, death, hesitancy), you got your 1990s clipped hair, and damn if the location doesn't look like [[http://www.masterfile.com/stock-photography/image/862-03353155/The-front-courtyard-of-the-British-Museum.-The-museum-was-founded-in-1753-from-the-private-collection-of-Sir-Hans-Sloane. the British Museum courtyard before they built the roof]]. Whispering Kenny's delivery remixes Elizabethan melancholy with 1990s fashion.

Consider what phrases you would annotate and what you would link them to. If this is done woodenly, as an exercise in linking, it doesn't achieve much. But if done with shrewd choice and commentary, it can work beautifully.
Consider how we might work with a Hamlet soliloquy (Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2). I'm highlighting structure in this first re-lining
//forgone// all custom of exercises; and indeed it

this **most excellent canopy, the air**, look you,
this **brave o'erhanging firmament**,
this **majestical roof fretted with golden fire**, why,

This is not simply a matter of parsing a source and adding links. The links need to be annotated, explained, in such a way that the link and target elaborate on the source. That's your job as the writer. You need to provide both the hypertext link and the significance of the connection.
What seems to evolve from this technique of annotating a source is a source embedded in an essay, or an essay lacing up a source. Not your typical scholarly article but something hybrid.

GUILDENSTERN
What should we say, my lord?
HAMLET
Why, any thing, but to the purpose. You were sent
for; and there is a kind of confession in your looks
which your modesties have not craft enough to colour:
I know the good king and queen have sent for you.
To what end, my lord?
HAMLET
That you must teach me. But let me conjure you, by
the rights of our fellowship, by the consonancy of
our youth, by the obligation of our ever-preserved
love, and by what more dear a better proposer could
charge you withal, be even and direct with me,
whether you were sent for, or no?
[Aside to GUILDENSTERN] What say you?
HAMLET
[Aside] Nay, then, I have an eye of you.--If you
love me, hold not off.
GUILDENSTERN
My lord, we were sent for.
HAMLET
I will tell you why; so shall my anticipation
prevent your discovery, and your secrecy to the king
and queen moult no feather.

custom of exercises; and indeed it //goes so heavily//
