Shakespeare SMS Style


In light of this post, I’m trying a little experiment. What if Shakespeare was reduced to SMS? Take for instance the Balcony Scene.

The Balcony Scene

Scene II. Capulet’s Garden.

Juliet.
O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, (35)
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.

O Romeo Romeo, where u @?
GMAB. 4get the rents.
Or ❤ me 4 true
And I’ll 4get mine. BCNU.
