An Interactive Visualization of Every Line in Hamilton

"When I first heard of Hamilton, I was doubtful ("a hip-hop musical?"). I was obsessed.I analyzed the lyrics; I reveled in the layers of complexity, the double entredres , the clever word plays.

When I started digging through the lyrics, I was curious about two things: the relationships between the main characters, and the recurring phrases associated with those characters.

So I went through every single line in Hamilton (twice 😱 ) and recorded who sang each line, as well as who that line may have been directed towards. I've noted every phrase that was sung more than once across more than one song, and grouped them into broad themes*. You can find my lovingly (obsessively) curated data here.
