Shakespeare Quotes

     Shakespeare Quotes
Shakespeare’s English is very similar to the English we speak today, although there are slight differences with verbs, prepositions and word order. The problem is that Shakespeare wrote dramatic poetry, and this sometimes makes it difficult to understand. During his time, Shakespeare invented many terms and expressions that are still used today, including “amazement”, “lonely” and “misplaced. In fact, the Oxford English Dictionary claims he introduced nearly 3,000 words into the language.
You’ve probably heard the Shakespeare quote “to be or not to be, that is the questions”. But there are lots more. Memorise these and impress your friends with your literary knowledge.
