Everyday Shakespeare

 Everyday Shakespeare
In the library lobby,
anytime during regular hours
Speak the speech, 
I pray you, 
as I pronounc'd it to you, 
trippingly on the tongue. . .   
Hamlet Act 3, scene 2

Many of the words and phrases that Shakespeare coined and popularized are contemporary household words (Henry the Fifth). Stop by and see if you recognize them. Laugh at some of Shakespeare’s well-crafted insults. Play around with some of his words and phrases—maybe you’ll coin a new one yourself!
