Quoting Shakespeare

Quoting Shakespeare If you a single line of verse, put it in quotation marks within your text. Hamlet scolds Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, saying they can Call me what instrument you will, though you can fret me, yet you cannot play upon me making it clear that he has had enough of their games (III.ii.362). If you incorporate two or three lines in the same way, using a slash with a space on each side [ / ] to separate them. Claudius alludes to the story of Cain and Abel when describing his crime: It hath the primal eldest curse upont, / A brothers murder (III.iii.3738). More than three lines, set as block quotations: start a new line and set each line one inch in from the left margin. If the quotation starts in the middle of a line of verse, reproduce it that way, dont shift it to the left margin.

Jaques begins his famous speech by comparing the world to a theater: All the worlds a stage And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. (II.vii.13842) He then proceeds to enumerate and analyze these ages. If you quote dialogue between characters in a play, set it as a block quotation as described above. Begin each part of the dialogue with the appropriate characters name written in all capital letters.

Place a period after the name; then start the quotation. When the dialogue shifts to a new character, start a new line. Maintain this pattern throughout the quotation. MACBETH. My dearest love, Duncan comes here tonight. LADY MACBETH. And when goes hence? MACBETH. Tomorrow, as he purposes. LADY MACBETH. O, never Shall sun that morrow see. (I.v.5760)
