What if Shakespeare talked just like you?

Just had to throw this out there for the general population who may not be familiar with SparkNotes or their “No Fear Shakespeare” series.

It’s not as though I’ve got a grudge against the site — I recall when it was just a bunch of Harvard graduates cranking out study guides.  One of my favorite teaching activities was to download a chapter of a poorly written sparkNote and have my class poke fun at it.

Now, the guides are a lot better.  So I’m reduced to poking fun at their advertisements.

So.  What if Shakespeare talked like you?  Who’s got the best answer?
