Original Shakespearean Pronunciation

This kind of blows my mind. The Shakespeare that is performed today has evolved over the centuries and the meaning of the words in it have evolved as well. So what might not seem so funny to us in today’s modern English was definitely funny at the time of its creation, all due to the evolution of those words.

It really makes one wonder what dinner conversations are like between this father and son. And I find it always assuring to know that people like this are devoting everything they’ve got to preserving art such as this.
