Shakespeares Language Thou odiferous boilbrained bum-bailey! [You] speak an infinite deal of nothing. Poe try vs Pro se Poetry (Verse) * a piece of writing that usually has figurative language and that is written in separate lines that often have a repeated

rhythm and sometimes rhyme Poe try Prose *the ordinary language that people use when they speak or write Pro se *(anything that isnt poetry!)

Is it Poetry or Prose? Raw celery is crunchy and makes your jaw work. Cooked celery is easier to eat. Celery raw Develops the jaw. But celery, stewed, Is more quietly chewed. Prose

No rhyme or metric scheme Qualities of everyday language Appears as a block of text, unlike the strict rhythmic patterns of Shakespeares verse. Why did Shakespeare use prose? Doing something different from everyone else. Telling us something about his characters emotion or social status Verse

Typically, Shakespeare and his contemporaries wrote plays in verse. Gives actors structure to learn their parts Gives characters a speech pattern and enhances their authority Generally, characters of higher status speak verse (whether they are magical or aristocratic), especially if they are thinking aloud or expressing their passions. Blank Verse

Poetry that is written in unrhymed iambic pentameter. often resembles the rhythms of ordinary speech. Shakespeare wrote most of his plays in blank verse. Hippolyta, I wooed thee with my sword, And won thy love, doing thee injuries. But I will wed thee in another key, With pomp, with triumph, and with reveling. Blank Verse cont

used mainly for passionate, lofty or momentous occasions for introspection Many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches are written in blank verse a speech or scene in blank verse may end with a single rhyming couplet known as a capping couplet. It is used to lend a final punch, a concluding flourish or a note of climax to the end of a speech or scene. Examples!

(which one doesnt have a rhyming, capping couplet?) Act One Scene One I will , my Hermia. Helena , adieu. As you on him, Demetrius dote on you! Act One Scene Two At the Dukes Oak we meet. Enough. Hold, or cut bowstrings

Act Two Scene One And look thou meet me ere the first cock crow. Fear not, my lord. Your servant shall do so. Act Two Scene Two No? Then I well perceive you are not nigh. Either death or you Ill find immediately. Iambic Pentameter Iambic Pentameter

(unstressed followed by stressed = iamb; five of these units = pent) The COURSE of TRUE love NEver DID run SMOOTH This has rhythm but that is not the same thing as rhyme Rhyme is used for ritualistic or choral effects and for highly lyrical or

judgmental passages that give advice or point to a moral for songs in examples of bad verse (the Pyramus and Thisbe play)to make fun of it in Prologues, Epilogues and in plays-within-plays (Pyramus and Thisbe) where it distinguishes these imaginary performances from the "real world" of the play. To show the supernatural-- the fairies especially-- but not for ghosts who retain the human use of blank verse. EXAMPLE: And Phibbus car/Shall shine from far/ and make and mar/ the foolish Fates. Rhymed Verse

in Shakespeare's plays rhymed verse is usually in rhymed couplets When the two lines of a rhyming couplet are in iambic pentameter, they are called heroic couplets: Demetrius loves your fair. O happy fair! Your eyes are lodestars and your tongues sweet air More tunable than lark to shepherds ear When wheat is green, when hawthorn buds appear! Iambic? Rhyming? Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.

Nor hath Love's mind of any judgment taste; Wings, and no eyes, figure unheedy haste: And therefore is Love said to be a child, Because in choice he is so oft beguiled. What is each an example of? blank verse or rhymed verse? Full of vexation come I, with complaint Against my child, my daughter Hermia Over hill, over dale, Thorough bush, thorough brier, Over park, over pale, Thorough flood, thorough fire;

Four days will quickly steep themselves in night; Four nights will quickly dream away the time; Soliloquy Shakespeares characters often speak to themselves during his plays. This is not because they are crazy (though, some of them actually might be), but it is to let the audience know what s/he is thinking at this point in the story.

Definition = a dramatic or literary form of discourse in which a character talks to himself or herself or reveals his or her thoughts without addressing a listener To Be or Not to Be Spoken by Hamlet, Act 3 Scene 1, as he is trying to figure out what to do with his life Probably Shakespeares most famous soliloquy To be, or not to be: that is the question:

Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? It goes on for 30 more lines!!! Malapropism Definition: the usually unintentionally humorous misuse or distortion of a word or phrase; especially : the use of a word sounding somewhat like the one intended but ridiculously wrong in the context Examples: There we may rehearse most obscenely

(there we may rehearse most discreetly) What is each an example of? prose or iambic pentameter? That task will ask some tears in the true performing of it. If I do it, let the audience look to their eyes. Take comfort: he no more shall see my face. Lysander and myself will fly this place. it will take time to restore chaos and order
