ChristopherBahnisch's insight:

This article contains Act 1, Scene 1 of Shakespeare's play 'Hamlet' with the original text side by side with modern interpretation of the lines.  This particular source is interesting because it'll allow you to examine how language has changed from Shakespearean times to now.  The source might also allow you to elaborate on how modern translations might lose meaning from their original text.
