The track 2 by Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, “Sir”.
Track 1 – Rhyme and Literary Elements
Hamilton contains extensive rhyming lines/words. Early in track 1 the words, “The ten dollar founding father without a father got a lot farther by working a lot harder, by being a lot smarter, by being a self-starter, by fourteen, they placed in him in charge of a trading charter”(Alexander Hamilton 0:27). The significance of this rhyme grouping is the way the information is compact closely together with word space, but it gives the reader (listener) and great deal of information as it holds the audiences attention. Additionally, the line “Then a hurricane came,…” (Alexander Hamilton” 0:54) presents an alliteration with a hard consonant sound C which also connects to the harsh experience that the lines are explaining.
