A Fine Translation

| Learning | March 3, 2015

(Our theater teacher is explaining Romeo and Juliet to us because some of my classmates are having a hard time understanding the language used.)

Teacher: “So here Romeo says, ‘but soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon who is already sick and pale with grief that thou her maid art far more fair than she.'”

(The teacher pauses for effect.)

Teacher: “Basically he’s saying, ‘d***, that lady’s fine!'”
