9780008137199: Pop Sonnets: Shakespearean Spins on Your Favourite Songs

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 50,000+ 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.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From western Philadelphia I hail,
where in my youth I’d play upon the green
’til — rue the day! — I found myself assail’d
by ru{ans contemptible and mean.
Although the spat was trivial and brief,
it wounded my dear mother deep within;
and so, to give her conscience sweet relief,
she sent me forth to live amongst her kin.
When to my port of call I’d been convey’d,
I came upon a coachman most unique;
and yet I simply took the trip and paid,
despite his cab’s decor and fresh mystique.
     — I survey all the land with princely mien
     in fair Bel-Air, where I do lay my scene.

Will Smith, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”
