Pick one sentence from Act I that you found particularly difficult to understand because of its syntax or word order. Using that difficult sentence, complete the following two activities:
1. Rearrange the sentence, without changing or omitting any of the words, to make it as clear as possible to a modern-day reader. For example, "So in love with you am I" becomes "I am so in love with you."
2. Translate the sentence into modern-day English, changing the words but keeping the meaning. For example, "So in love with you am I" becomes "I've got a huge crush on you" or "I love you so much." (Come up with your own – don’t just steal it from Sparknotes!)
After completing these steps, post a message that includes the following items:
The original sentence.
Your rearrangement of the sentence.
Your translation of the sentence.
A short paragraph explaining why you think Shakespeare chose to arrange the sentence as he did.
Finally, give another student feedback on their translation.
