My Tweets Are Nothing Like The Sun: William Shakespeare on Twitter By Mark Hillary

Everyone knows something of the sonnets of William Shakespeare - even if they have never read Shakespeare. Allusions are all around in song lyrics, TV shows, and news headlines. The 154 poems... More > Shakespeare wrote in sonnet form and published in 1609 are referenced in so much popular culture, yet unless you are a student of English literature you may not have ever tried reading them. Now you don't have to. In this book, all the 154 original poems are included and paired with a Twitter version. That's right, every one of the sonnets has been reduced to a message of fewer than 140-characters. This is an experiment in making 400-year-old poetry work in the age of social media, but it is also a continuation of the sonnet traditions. Sonnets are very structured, short poems anyway. Poets needed to follow strict rules to make a sonnet work, to convey meaning within a set number of lines. In this book, the sonnets have been reduced to individual tweets - but they still retain the essence of each poem.< Less
