' The Balcony Scene '

Posted by Aderia , Nov 10 2010 · 79 views

'Real' Life
So, we're reading Romeo and Juliet' in English right now. And it's great.

...

Well, it would be, if I didn't have to stop every other line to translate from archaic English, which I'm growing to hate. But I will just say, the famous Balcony Scene from Act II, Scene II would be so much more enjoyable and relatable if I didn't have to write an essay about what Romeo and Juliet are feeling, and how their moods contrast, and all the factors that play into this and that, and it goes on and on and on.

I swear, some teachers exist just to suck the fun out of works of written art.

I've never read it.

Unless I'm assigned it in college, I won't ever have to.

Take that, cruel fate.

Pray, fair madam, I beg thee. Do not think so lowly of this matter of speak. For I wot not your hatred of it.

Methinks that the words good sir Spirit says are frightfully true. Art thou feeling well, lady Aderia?

(Yes, Mangai and I were talking like this for like an hour in a chatroom. Get used to it. tongue.gif)

For the last time, GET WITH THE TIMES! And no, my brain is NOT light! And you misspelled "Seekist" as "Seekst"! You know something about Shakespeare? HES DEAD! Unless of course, you believe the events of "TSONF: The Sorceress" to have actually happened! haporitohu.gif

Oh thou vile Kni! Thou soundeth like thou hast the logic of a mere serf! Ye're forgetting that I will be dragged into this age, laying about with hanger and whittle. Pray keep thy matter of speak to thineself, and I shalt do the same!

I wot not your problem with this manner of speech.

They doth both be, Sir LL. Thou needst readeth them; they doth be tomes of undescribable excellence.
