William Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT [Re-done] is a very diligent attempt to put into 'Modern Dress' Shakespeare's original play. The process was arduous, and it involved trying to retain Shakespearean form at least hugely. [One salient (and silly?) deviation from basic faithfulness could be the apparently capricious altering of 'the Elephant' to 'Camel's Inn.'] A quite pervasive idea in terms of all practical considerations was something very much like the careful restoration of an old photograph or an old painting. After all, Shakespeare lived near London over 400 years ago, and his language decidedly is not our language. The passages in Verse were mostly not very altered in terms of sheer length, whereas for possible clarity's sake the ~Re-done~ Nonverse aspect often tends to be more fully wordy than was true in Shakespeare's own rendition.
