The above represents a well-known passage from a literary masterpiece, in which:
a. All punctuation marks were erased.
b. Capitalized words and words over 8 letters were replaced by a dollar sign.
c. The first and last letters of all words over two letters were erased.
d. The rest (i.e. one and two-letter words and the spacing) was left unchanged.
Example: condition d would look as follows:
d h es i e n n w ette ord n h pacin a ef nchange
Please restore the original text and name the source.
Condition b. should read proper nouns and words over 9 letters were replaced by a dollar sign, other capitalized words were changed to lowercase before any other changes.
The initial letter of all the sentences are capitalized, to include the two-letter word "In", and the word "lightning" is 9 letters in length.
The passage is from Act I, scene 1 of William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Included in this copy of the passage are the speakers of the lines:
(First witch): When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning or in rain?
(Second witch): When the hurly-burly's done. When the battle's lost and won.
(Third witch): That will be ere the set of sun.
(First witch): Where the place?
(Second witch): Upon the heath.
(Third witch): There to meet with Macbeth.
(First witch): I come Graymalkin.
