Modern Shakespeare Books

400 years later and Shakespeare just hasn't gotten old. Good old Will has earned his place in the literary canon for good reason. I mean, the guy invented 1700 words, remaking our language. He is responsible for the most cunning, hilarious insults.
But it wasn't just his clever way with words that made him and enduring literary figure. These stories—of love and betrayal, of revenge and jealousy, of ambition and folly—speak to the human condition.
So it's no surprise that the basic plots and the character archetypes of Shakespeare have been remixed by modern writers.
