NATIONAL TALK LIKE SHAKESPEARE DAY

Celebrated annually on April 23, it is National Talk Like Shakespeare Day.  April 23 is the accepted birth and the death anniversary of English poet and playwright William Shakespeare.

Born in 1564, Shakespeare died on April 23, 1616 at the age of 52.  This year, 2013, celebrates his 449th birthday.  On National Talk Like Shakespeare Day, everyone is encouraged to talk, in Shakespeare-like dialogue. for the day.

William Shakespeare was regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and also called England’s national poet.  His plays have been translated into every major living language and they are preformed more often than the plays of any other playwright.

Hamlet,  King Lear,  Othello and  Macbeth are considered some of the Shakespeare’s finest works in the the English language with Romeo and Juliet to A Midsummer Night’s Dream as classics.

 Today talk with some: thee’s, thou’s and ye’s and for an example:
“methoughts I lay”  or “leaning toward the nayward”
