that which we call a rose by any other NAME would smell as sweet. i did this as my monologue in drama II and what you have is incorrect...please, change it. Shakespeare is rolling in his grave.
Mar 17th, 2011 at 03:59 GMT
actually i am not wrong, my book says it and the internet says it is right too, you indeed are the one who is wrong, therefore i have no reason to change it, i just have to add name as another option, dont have to call me out on being incorrect in such a bossy tone when you are not completely correct
Mar 30th, 2011 at 00:37 GMT
actually the internet isnt a reliable source all the time, in case you didn't know, and you are wrong, i just did a monologue on this.
Apr 2nd, 2011 at 20:36 GMT
yea i did it the same day i made it and copied this right out of the book
Apr 2nd, 2011 at 20:39 GMT
and hes dead, therefore he cannot roll around

I've got it as 'word' as well... But I'm sure Shakespeare will just be glad we're still having this discussion 400 years after his death!

jblanch, you are vindicated. It is "word" in both the second quarto of 1599 and the folio of 1623. It is "name" in the "bad" quarto of 1597, but then we wouldn't listen to someone who said "It's really 'to be or not to be ay that's the point' I just did a monologue on this" would we?

No need for anyone to get snippy. Sometimes entire scenes can be different between the folios and quatros of Shakespeare's plays. And oftentimes editors will mix and match bits of both when they publish new editions. There really is no way to tell which way Shakespeare intended it to be, but he'd probably laugh his head off at people arguing this heatedly about something so trivial.

Much better than her lesser known SNL monologue.

Going to go ahead and admit that my knowledge of this speech comes mainly from the episode of the Brady Bunch when Marcia practiced it over and over again.

Argh, I'm much better on the Romeo side of this balcony.

Once upon a time I knew this. I played Juliet in this scene in my acting class in high school. It didn't stick, apparently.
Nov 10th, 2011 at 22:07 GMT
Lol just my luck "wherefore" is all one word, i kept writing where and for seperatley, ahh well

I only missed 5 blanks. When I gave up (with 4 1/2 minutes left) I was so annoyed! Grr.
