old-books-candleRecently, I discovered a creative site that I absolutely adore, and I love it so much that I wanted to share it here. It’s called Pop Sonnets, and the creator takes lyrics from modern songs and writes a new version of them, Shakespearean-style. It’s nothing short of amazing; the writing is wonderfully lyrical and utilizes Shakespearean language and form in a way that’s still completely accessible to the modern reader. The transformation is so well done that half the time, I can’t even tell which song inspired the piece until I look at the closing attribution. Check it out for yourself and see if you aren’t anxiously awaiting each week’s new entry.
