the obvious difficulty is that with Shakespeare, the language is the play, so if you’re changing the language you’re changing the play in many ways. And the best you can do is to try to understand what Shakespeare was trying to say and attempt to put it in words that wouldn’t shame you or him by being so odd. It is difficult, I’ve always wanted to do a Shakespeare and I’m finding it very very interesting…But it is difficult of course. But you know the language is the essence of Shakespeare so this makes it almost impossible in many ways. But worth attempting all the same.1I tried to link to other Macmillan Reader's Editions, like Emma, but they've been taken down.
