Shakespeare's plays seem to be inherently plural in meanings. Language functions on many separate levels, suggesting more than one meaning for a given word. The irregularities of spelling in the Early Modern period contribute to this plurality. For instance, a word like "sonne" could mean our modern "son", "sun", or conversely retain both meaning at the same time. The word "made" in this study of Twelfth Night is another example of the plurality. In this sense there is an instability between the signifier and the signified in Shakespearean texts that produces multiple meanings.
In this project I wanted to use hypertext to showcase the different possibilities for reading a single section of Shakespeare's text. This multiplicity is impossible in a single print version.
