Question by mr.irizarry: how to change Romeo and Juliet quotes to modernday?
1. ROMEO “By a name I know not how to tell thee who I am. My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself because it is an enemy to thee. Had I it written, I would tear the word.” [Act II, scene ii]
2. JULIET “O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon, that monthly changes in her circle orb, lest that thy love prove likewise variable.” [Act II, scene ii]
3. PARIS “These times of woe afford no times to woo.” [Act III, scene iv]
4. LORD CAPULET “…Death is my son-in-law, Death is my heir: My daughter he hath wedded. I will die and leave him all. Life, living, all is Death’s.” [Act IV, scene v]
5. NURSE “A man, young lady! Lady, such a man as all the world — Why, he’s a man of wax.” [Act I, scene iii]
6. MERCUTIO “…A plague a both your houses! They have made worms’ meat of me. I have it, and soundly too. Your houses!” [Act III, scene i]
7. TYBALT “….I will withdraw, but this intrusion shall, now seeming sweet, convert to bitt’rest gall.” [Act I, scene v]
8. BENVOLIO “…Go thither, and with unattainted eye compare her face with some that I shall show, and I will make thee think thy swan a crow.” [Act I, scene ii]
9. PRINCE ESCALUS “…See what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. And I, for winking at your discords too, have lost a brace of kinsmen. All are punished.” [Act V, scene iii]
10. FRIAR LAWRENCE “Holy Saint Francis! What a change is here! Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear, so soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” [Act II, scene iii]
BONUS: REVERSE TRANSLATION “Yes, perhaps today I will; indeed, I should have done it long ago!”

COPY any three character quotes below and then translate Shakespeare’s language into modern, everyday language. Feel free to use the slang and “hip lingo” of our day; your translation can be humorous.

Hey, I did a few of them, they’re not clever or funny but they’re correct if you can use them.
1. ROMEO “By a name I know not how to tell thee who I am. My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself because it is an enemy to thee. Had I it written, I would tear the word.” [Act II, scene ii]
1) Who am I? My name won’t answer that question, my name makes me something you hate, so I hate it too. If I had a choice I would remove it from my identity.
6. MERCUTIO “…A plague a both your houses! They have made worms’ meat of me. I have it, and soundly too. Your houses!” [Act III, scene i]
6) Damn you both! You’ve destroyed me! There, I said it, and I meant it too. Damn you!
7. TYBALT “….I will withdraw, but this intrusion shall, now seeming sweet, convert to bitt’rest gall.” [Act I, scene v]
7) I’ll be cool, for now, but swallowing this anger just makes me more bitter about it than I was to begin with.
8. BENVOLIO “…Go thither, and with unattainted eye compare her face with some that I shall show, and I will make thee think thy swan a crow.” [Act I, scene ii]
8) Come out with me tonight, I will show you women so hot that she’ll look like an old hag by comparison.
10. FRIAR LAWRENCE “Holy Saint Francis! What a change is here! Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear, so soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” [Act II, scene iii]
10) Oh my dear God! So what? You ‘loved’ her yesterday but it’s someone else today? That’s called ‘lust’ not love.
