What Does Shakespeare Sound Like in Modern English?

Hi, Shmoopers,

You already know Shmoop as your home for all things Shakespeare. Now we’ve added another treat to the mix:
Shakespeare in Modern English.

The way we see it, reading a modern English version of Shakespeare just isn’t the same. But, uh, not understanding what on earth he’s saying? Not so great either. We’ve got the best of both worlds: reading the original text while getting side-by-side insight into what’s actually happening in each scene.

We plan to get you a translation for every single one faster than you can say “to the fire i’ in the blood: be more abstemious, Or else, good night your vow!”

Now go get your Bard on,
