How would I use ellipses in Shakspearean quotes? I know that after every line you put a / but I want to omit like half a speech and get to the end. How would I do this? This is what I want to use:
“You call me misbeliever, cutthroat dog/ And you spit upon my Jewish gabardine” (Act I, Scene III, Lines 109-110), “Fair sir, you spit on me on Wednesday last/ You spurned me such a day, another time/ You called me a dog, and for these courtesies/ I’ll lend you thus much moneys?” (Act I, Scene III, Lines 124-127).
I want to combine these :)
Another question. For the second quote above, it is being quoted in the play so would I start it like "' and end it '" instead of starting it as " and ending it as "?
Are ellpises allowded to be used in Shakspeare's quotes? I looked on google I can't find anything that talks about ellipses in realtion to Shakspeare's quotes :S
Or, something in the GOOGLE Search above.
