Shakespeare According to Tumblr

Do you find it difficult to relate to life according to a 16th century English playwright? Never traded places with your twin brother just to mess with the entire town? Never been so blind to reality that you actually went blind? Never acted a little crazy after your uncle tried to poison you and then everyone ended up dead? Well, maybe reading our current featured read When You Were Mine, a modern spin on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet told from the perspective of Rosaline, will help translate the drama into the 21st century.

If you’d like it broken down (and summarized and criticized and parodied) even further, I’ve gathered up some ingenious posts from the good people of Tumblr who really know how to make the Bard of Avon appeal to all you procrastinators putting off writing your English papers in favor of messing around (er, studying…googling Shakespeare definitely counts as research) on the internet.
