Copying Lines from Shakespeare

For a Reading Log

  • Remember that Shakespeare writes his plays in blank verse, unrhymed iambic pentameter.
  • When you copy lines, you must capitalize and punctuate as in the text.
  • You must also show line endings.
  • You must give act. scene. and line numbers.
  • Do not copy parts of a line that have nothing to do with the reading log.
    • Wrong: “This supernatural soliciting/ Cannot be ill, cannot be good. If ill” (1.3.131-32).
    • Correct: “This supernatural soliciting/ Cannot be ill, cannot be good” (1.3.131-32).
    • Wrong: “For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires/ Let not light see my black and deep desires” (1.5.50-51).
    • Correct: “Stars, hide your fires/ Let not light see my black and deep desires” (1.5.50-51).
  • Be careful counting lines. Because of iambic pentameter, a line can split between speakers but be the same line number.
    • See 1.5.27; it’s split between Macbeth and Duncan.
