In my last post, I mentioned that a lot of expressions that we use today were actually used coined by the bard himself, William Shakespeare. I had a great deal of fun discovering which ones and so, I decided to compile a list of them for you. Perhaps you know them, perhaps not. But it is great fun to imagine in Elizabethan England, these phrases being tossed out in everyday banter. Of course, not everyone would have read the play, but if they had seen the play, they would have heard it. All it takes is one person to pick it up and use it before it spreads and everyone is using it.
Without further ado…
That’s right. We have Shakespeare to thank for ‘knock knock’ jokes. Orange you glad to know that? (Bad pun, forgive me.)
– “It’s Greek to me.” – Julius Caesar
– “The lady doth protest too much!” – Hamlet
Those are just a few, but I thought you would enjoy seeing them. If you know more, let me know! ❤I love to learn new things.
