Om det er noblere i sindet at tåle

Forargelig skæbnens stene og pilene

Eller at trække sværdet mod et hav af sorger

Og ved at modsætte sig standse dem

Indeed, that's how Prince Hamlet would have sounded.

Not exactly, Danish pronunciation has changed since then as much as English pronunciation has. (And the original story goes back at least to the 12th century and would have taken place several centuries earlier.) But certainly closer than what Shakespeare wrote!

I also (apart from Hamlet I mean) have a question, is it possible to say "At være eller ikke være?" (i.e. to skip the second "at"). That's how we say in Swedish "Att vara eller inte vara".
