Read Shakespeare's Work?! No Way!!

Here's some tips to make it easier for you to say "Yes Way"!

Did they really talk in the way Shakespeare wrote?

The answer to this is no. The only reason Shakespeare wrote this way was for dramatic and poetic effects.

For example;

  • I ate the sandwich
  • The sandwich I ate

So when you see words put them in the order that makes more sense to you.

Why does Shakespeare use funny looking words?

Shakespeare uses words like "ne'er" or "oft" by these words he's meaning "never" and "often". He does this because he has to squeeze words so that the symbols work in his poems.
