Pop Sonnets: Shakespearean Spins on Your Favorite Songs

In our heart of hearts, perhaps there is nothing more popular and beloved in the world of storytelling as the works of William Shakespeare.

Centuries after him passing away, his works have stood the test of time and are still heralded as the best, even in our modern world. Heck, we even call a film, a work of art, music or whatever it is “Shakespearean” when it is of such high quality or is reminiscent of the famous plots and storylines the late poet has blessed our lives with. Nowadays a writer such as the Bard of Avon is hard to come by.

With the English language becoming more and more simple by the day, it is hard to imagine stories, let alone music, to be written in such profound ways. Or so you think.

Presenting the Pop Sonnets: Shakespearean Spins on Your Favorite Songs book by Erik Didriksen, a collection of popular modern songs reimagined as if it were written by the hands of the famous William Shakespeare himself. There is no perfect gift for all the book lovers out there!
