I wanna congratulate Ree-ree, Surrah, and Surrara for the lovely and splendicular performance I shared with them. I hope my 5-6 class enjoyed it as much as I did. (Oh, p.s. - sorry for spoiling your dealie, Jeff.)
If you go to SparkNotes.com and then (on the front page) click on No Fear Shakespeare, you will find the text of King Lear in its entirety juxtaposed with a modern-day translation of the words. It's amazing. I practically re-read the first half of the play online with only the modern translation. I couldn't believe how much more I understood that way. I was able to compare the two different types of speech and see how the words correlated. It helped me better understand my character and the play as a whole.
Is anyone else really getting into their character?
