There’s also an aspect to Shakespeare that he’s working from a slightly different from of English, which still has many words and grammatical forms from Dutch in it. It sounds foreign to us, but it was more in line with how real people spoke at the time. A lot of things that confused me about Shakeapeare’s verse made much more sense once I began studying Germanic languages and the ways that English grew to its modern form over the past millennium.
