Twitterature: The World’s Greatest Books In Twenty Tweets Or Less

Twitterature by Alexander Aciman and Emmett Rensin

Description: Perhaps while reading Shakespeare you’ve asked yourself, “What exactly is Hamlet trying to tell me? Why must he mince his words, muse in lyricism and, in short, whack about the shrub?” No doubt such troubling questions would have been swiftly resolved were the Prince of Denmark a registered user on Twitter.com. This, in essence, is TWITTERATURE (A Penguin Original; On-sale Date: December 29, 2009; ISBN 978-0-14-311732-2; 224 pages; $12.00). Hatched in a dorm room at the University of Chicago, TWITTERATURE is a hilarious and irreverent re-imagining of the classics as a series of 140-character tweets from the protagonist. Here you will find more than 80 of the greatest works of western literature—from Beowulf to Bronte, from Kafka to Kerouac, and from Dostoevsky to Dickens—each distilled through the voice of Twitter to its purest, pithiest essence. Including a full glossary of online acronyms and Twitterary terms to aid the amateur, TWITTERATURE provides everything you need to master the literature of the civilized world.
