Shakespeare in its original dialect

Shakespeare in its original dialect

It doesn’t seem quite right that some of the most important literature we have is viewed from such a modern perspective. Obviously people still get value out of just reading something as it makes sense to them, but there’s no doubt that some of that value gets lost without the context of the original language or setting. That’s why this theatre has started putting on Shakespeare performances in the original accent they would have been performed in. Suddenly these lines we’ve been studying for hundreds of years have new rhymes and sometimes different meanings.
