Susan and I talked about it a little bit in our third podcast, but here’s a full article from the Washington Post about the Washington Shakespeare Company producing the Klingon translation of Hamlet on stage.

How wild is this? I can be accused of being a bit too much of a Shakespeare traditionalist (though in some ways I’m anything but), but this just fascinates me. People make fun of those who originally translated Hamlet into Klingon, but it must have been a labor of love. To translate poetry, even into an invented language, is an incredible effort, and I admire those who did it.
