Question:

Why is there so much cross-dressing in Shakespeare?

Inactive
Kayla C.
Answer:

We can't know for certain, but there are likely at least these two reasons. One: Shakespeare thought it would be funny because female actors were forbidden in Elizibeaithan England—so anyone playing a female character in his plays was a boy cross-dressing as a woman. Why not make this even more confusing by having a boy pretending to be a girl pretending to be a boy? Two: Because of the strictures that European society placed on women, it was often difficult to write them having as active roles in adventurous stories. The most important legacy of Shakespearian female cross-dressing is several 400-year-old plays with intelligent female protagonists who possess power, agency, and the ability to destroy people in court.

Question:

What is the difference between the words "do" and "make" in English?

Answer:

The best way to tell the difference is to ask yourself "Am I creating or constructing?" If you are creating or constructing anything, then "make" is usually the right choice—if not, it will probably be "do".

Question:

How do I know when to use a semicolon in a sentence?

Answer:

This one is actually pretty easy! You can use semicolons anywhere that you might also use a period and it would still be correct; so, anyplace where you have two complete sentences, but don't want the thoughts to be truly separate. There are a few other details, but stick to the period/complete sentence rule and you'll be fine.
