: This is veering off topic, but I imagine that
: Shakespeare must be nearly impossible to do
: justice to in translation. I have seen a
: couple of English translations of plays by
: Moliere performed, and no matter how good
: the performances, I always come out wishing
: they had done the play in the original with
: projected titles so I could hear the beauty
: of the playwright's words.
I feel the same way myself -- oftentimes wondering why anybody would even bother trying to translate Shakespeare.
