How Do I Read Shakespeare.
In 9th grade, we read Romeo and Juliet and I absolutely fell in love with Shakespeare. I loved the writing, the language, they storys! However, it was really difficult to read. We had to read it as a class. Is there a book with the original text and translation?
Don’t read it, watch it.It is successive governments’ bloody stupid idea that students should “read” Shakespeare which is turning so many off The Bard.The plays were NEVER meant to be read, they were meant to be watched. There are so many brilliant adaptations of his plays on film I would suggest buying one or more of those and watching instead.Two fingers to the fcuking government!You have my permission to tell this to your English teacher (without the profanities of course).
How do you think Shakespeare would have written this.
everybody knows shakespeare, the famous book and play writer. i’m in love with his language, the old english. i was wondering if you could write this in that old english, how shakespeare would have written it?”Why are you so desperate, so pathetic? you’ve fallen lower than ever, it’s not explainable.”
It’s hard to tell how Shakespeare himself would have written it, because depending on the importance of the characters etc he might have made it rhyme.Also, Shakespeare is famous for re-inventing language and no doubt he wouldn’t write a sentence so plainly, he would more likely use some strange metaphor that schoolchildren would have to analise in an essay many years later (good times…) but I’m assuming you’re referring simply to the type of language used in those times, and not specifically the way Shakespeare used language, and if that’s the case then this is probably how they would have written it:’why art thou so desperate, so pathetic? thou hast fallen lower than ever, it is not explainable.’Hope this helps 🙂

Did Shakespeare write his own work .
I’m in the midst of writing my senior research paper and I’m just a tad bit stuck on where to go,after I introduce my paper . I”m having much difficulties finding legit sources and books on how to support my topic (the topic of which i did not choose, my teacher) . Any help would be great thank you.
This is a very interesting, but a very vexing question as there is a great deal of debate about whether Shakespeare wrote all of the works attributed to him, some of the works – or none of them! Marlowe has been suggested as a possible author – as have other noted authors of the period. What is perplexing to many scholars is that Shakespeare seemed to come out of nowhere, and immediately begin to write plays that have become classics. This may be because his earlier, lesser works simply didn’t survive. Or there may be another reason as well.I’m sure you’ve already googled Shakespeare, but try googling Marlowe as well. Good luck with it.
