In 1623, two of his actor friends published the “First Folio.” A folio (FOlee-o) is a special kind of book. There are only 232 known copies of the First Folio still in existence. Unfortunately, no two are exactly alike. Printers of the time put the folios together in different orders. Sometimes they decided to correct what they thought were errors; punctuation was put in differently, and the spellings of some words changed. Actors and directors may have changed things in the plays too. By looking at all the versions, scholars have put together what they believe are the most accurate scripts. The First Folio contains 36 of Shakespeare’s plays. If we didn’t have this book, we would have lost about half of his plays, including “Macbeth” and “Twelfth Night.” Title Page. William Shakespeare.

If you have ever been in a pickle, tonguetied, had too much of a good thing, refused to budge an inch, or heard your folks say, “You’ve eaten me out of house and home,” then you’ve been living with the words of William Shakespeare. He was able to put words together so beautifully that today, almost 460 years after his birth, we are still quoting Shakespeare. Alberto Sangorski. Songs and Sonnets by William Shakespeare. Manuscript, 1926 (Detail). George Sigmund Facius, printmaker, Folger Shakespeare Library ‘All the world’s a stage’ Shakespeare invented hundreds of words, used them in brand-new ways and wrote lines that opened up new ways of seeing. Words from his plays and poems still ring true today. His plays include “Romeo and Juliet,” “Hamlet” and “Julius Caesar.” He is also famous for a special kind of poetry called a sonnet (SAHN-ut). ‘The play’s the thing’ People in Shakespeare’s time loved to play with words. They also loved proverbs, or sayings. Shakespeare shared these loves. He invented hundreds of sayings. Some of the language may have already been in use at the time, but his works are the only record we have of it. Let’s explore some of Shakespeare’s words that we still use today. • If you’ve ever been to a high school or college graduation ceremony, you probably heard a song called “Pomp and Circumstance.” This phrase comes from Act 3 of Shakespeare’s play “Othello,” but the characters aren’t talking about high school. “Pomp and circumstance” in this case refers to the ceremony and excitement of warfare. • Family members will sometimes call Your own ﬂesh each other their “own and blood ﬂesh and blood.” Shakespeare used this phrase in several of his plays, including “Hamlet” and “Merchant of Venice.” • This funny saying is from Eaten me out of the play “Henry house and home the Fourth.” A woman who takes in boarders, or people who rent a room, is talking about Sir John Falstaff, who “hath put all my substance into that fat belly of his.” For goodness’ • You might say sake “For goodness’ sake!” when you drop a ball or trip on a branch. But Shakespeare meant it differently. In “Henry the Eighth,” it means “for the sake of goodness and decency.” Pomp and circumstance Resources On the Web: • folger.edu/shakespeare-kids At the library: • “A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories” by Angela McAllister • “Flibbertigibetty Words: Young Shakespeare Chases Inspiration” by Donna Guthrie The Mini Page® © 2020 Andrews McMeel Syndication Try ’n’ Find Mini Jokes Words that remind us of Shakespeare are hidden in this puzzle.

While a reading of 134 degrees was taken in Death Valley in 1913, recent studies suggest it was incorrect because of observer error. • 2 teaspoons salt-free Italian seasoning • 2 cups baby carrots • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth What to do: 1.
