Shakespeare Lyrics
Shakespeare Song
I shalt pop some tags, only possess
20 shillings within my pocket.
imagnet:
readding -thoug hts:
I Not Iamjoe... Do Not Accept...
These tags I' ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my and manhood path [felate
when lofty furs I purchase fora cent.
Thy gra napa' s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question' s moot.
I' ll never give my coin to crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden lent
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Lolita ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I' ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
h/ macklemore, "Thrift Shoppe"
Crying with laughter"
ITS IN PENTAMETER. SWEET JESUS THIS IS MY NEW
FAVORITE THING.
so BEAUTIFUL.
THIS IS WHAT ENGLISH LIT IS FOR.

I'm studying English Lit with Creative Writing at the minute at Uni, and let me tell you, this is the tightest **** . Not only is it spot on Iambic Pentameter, it's a Shakespearean sonnet. A perfect one. Lemme tell you, I've to write those, they aren't as easy as you'd think. Whoever cracked that out earns serious respect.

I ******* loved shakespeare. I always thought it was cliche and stupid when people were like "oh i hated shakespeare". There ARE reasons to hate shakespeare, but not because you're a dumb bitch who can't read anything that isn't in text language.

The only reason to logically despise shakespeare was the fact that his stories were mostly stolen and his diction was inaccurate for the time period. Nobody actually talked like that. But if you hate it because it's "hard to understand" you're being that guy. You know that guy, who goes "man i aint read this **** damn ***** like goddamn braille or some **** "

But other than that, Shakespeare wrote some really sweet **** . Hamlet was ****** awesome and Romeo and Juliet is actually really fun (if you understand that the story is not a love story but a sensationalized romanticization of teenage confusion and suicide). Othello was ****** dank and the tempest absolutely sucked but we dont talk about that.

Mercutio is mah ***** .

I liked Shakespeare more, the more I read his work. First play or two I didn't understand a goddamn thing. Fast forward to my fifth and I have no problem understanding what's going on

Othello and Julius Caesar are my favorite Shakespeare plays.
User avatar #62 to #2 - liamdurf ONLINE (04/04/2014) [-]
I think a good number of people don't like Shakespeare because they don't see people performing it the way it should be done. My appreciation for his work shot up after seeing Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet.

I like Shakespeare, after you get over his pre-invention copyright infringement, I just hated having to study him.
It's like watching a movie you like but then having to write a five page essay on this bit of the movie no-one paid attention to about how it represents this thing which was created 50 years afterwards and never even alluded to and having to convince the reader that it's vital that they understand the allegory of the emotionally metaphorical simile about goerge orwells 1984 and how it represents the russian revolution.

To be honest, I've never liked Shakespeare. I enjoy some of his works, but the majority I do not, because I dislike his style of storytelling. I always found Shakespeare to be uninteresting, and lacking in substance. My only exceptions is Macbeth and Hamlet. I loved his use of imagery and his representation of insanity from the first person perspective. The rest of his worth I could take or leave.

Bottom the Weaver from A Midsummer Night's dream was a real asshat.


It was a joke concerning the fact that his head literally gets turned into a donkey head by the fairy king Oberon
he was also a bit of a twat by hogging all of the roles
Did the acting troupe ever get hanged?
User avatar #32 to #15 - spacesword (04/04/2014) [-]
In case you didn't know. The whole troupe, know as the Rude Mechanicals, had names that were ironic or plays on there natures as a person. Like Quince being suborn and making a sour face much of the time because of his frustrations with Bottom.

#4 to #3 - John Cena (04/04/2014) [-]
Julius Caesar was a spectacular god-damned play and we all know it.
User avatar #29 to #2 - spacesword (04/04/2014) [-]
I like to look at Romeo and Juliet as being more about parenting than a love story. Romeo was little a bitch and so was Tybalt.
User avatar #9 to #2 - captainrattrap ONLINE (04/04/2014) [-]
I think the unnecessary diction was a gimmic that didn't serve a purpose other than to make it more cryptic than it has to be. It's the "high" literary version of autotune, I think. Creative if done only once for a couple works, but it gets old.
#5 to #2 - John Cena (04/04/2014) [-]
Idgaf about diction or how "hard" it was to read, or that his stories were stolen. I don't want to read his old ass stories that spend way too long talking without saying much to get across a ****** point.

I'm sorry, but if you do not ask, how can you learn. What is "Iambic Pentameter"? I know I could google it, but I'm hoping somebody could explain it layman's terms. I'm not the smartest person.
#16 to #13 - macjigiddy (04/04/2014) [-]
Iambic pentameter is the rhythm structure Shakespeare used. Every line consists of 10 syllables with 5 stresses. If you say the line in time to a heartbeat it works better. Iambic pentameter is best understood when read aloud, so if you get into the rhythm of 'ba-DUM, ba-DUM, ba-DUM, then replace 'ba-DUM' with the words, you get iambic pentameter.
eg. 'these TAGS i POP, and BOAST in RHY-ming VERSE
that WHAT i WEAR puts SWAGG-er IN my GAIT'

I know what Iambic Pentameter is, but I cannot write in it for the life of me.
**** poetry.
User avatar #23 to #21 - unusualember (04/04/2014) [-]
You don't need iambic pentameter to make good poetry. It's nice, but you don't need it.
User avatar #36 to #23 - localbees (04/04/2014) [-]
I can't do regular poetry either. Haikus are about the extent of my abilities.
User avatar #54 to #36 - jarofdirt (04/04/2014) [-]
How about this Roman poem by Catullus?

I will sodomize you and ********* you,
Cock-sucker Aurelius and catamite Furius,
You who think, because my verses
Are delicate, that I am modest.
For it's right for the devoted poet to be chaste
Himself, but it's not necessary for his verses to be so.
Verses which then have taste and charm,
If they are delicate and sexy,
And can incite an itch,
And I don't mean in boys, but in those hairy old men
Who can't get their flaccid dicks up.
You, because you have read of my thousand kisses,
You think I'm a sissy?
I will sodomize you and ********* you.

Can I get a reference for that?

Funny. I can do regular poetry fine, but I cannot even comprehend Haikus for the life of me.
User avatar #48 to #36 - unusualember (04/04/2014) [-]
Well then write beautiful haikus. If you want, you could put them in an anthology.
#49 to #48 - localbees (04/04/2014) [-]
I don't like poems.
I have written this for you.
It is over now.
