Shakespearean Spins on Your Favorite Songs
by Erik Didriksen
I love this book! Shakespearean takes on a variety of songs from Hip Hop, Rock, Country and Pop. I showed this to my college aged and adult children m and they thought it was great. We ended up reading our favorite entries and then playing the verse of the song it referenced. This would make an excellent gift for anyone that loves music.
The Bard meets the Backstreet Boys in Pop Sonnets, a collection of 100 classic pop songs reimagined as Shakespearean sonnets. All of your favorite artists are represented in these pages—from Bon Jovi and Green Day to Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, and beyond. Already a smash sensation on the Internet—the Tumblr page has 20,000+ followers—Pop Sonnets has been featured by the A.V. Club, BuzzFeed, and Vanity Fair, among many others. More than half of these pop sonnets are exclusive to this collection and have never been published in any form.
