at what point in history do you think americans stopped having british accents
Actually, Americans still have the original British accent. We kept it over time and Britain didn’t. What we currently coin as a British accent developed in England during the 19th century among the upper class as a symbol of status. Historians often claim that Shakespeare sounds better in an American accent.
i used to piss off my english teacher by making stupid csi puns every time a character died in hamlet
like we got to the part where ophelia died and i borrowed a kid’s sunglasses and i was like “looks like ophelia…was drowning her sorrows”
i almost got kicked out every day but it was worth it
So. We all know what happened at the end of The Tempest, right? Prospero destroys his magic, and Miranda gets married to Ferdinand, and the all travel back to Italy. But… what will happen to Miranda?!
“MIRANDA: How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! Oh, brave new world that has such people in’t!” (5.1.184-186)
Which such naivety, it would be lucky for her to survive more than a week off of the island she was raised on. She will be tormented by bitchy women who find her more beautiful than themselves, and she would get destroyed. Or, she would think that chess means marriage, and therefore would want to marry any attractive male she plays chess with. OR, she could actually be a lesbian. The most likely thing to happen, however, is her inevitable death due to exposure to diseases she has not gained immunity to by being on a secluded island for the majority of her life. Basically, this “brave new world” will be the unpleasant death of her.
