Summary
"One of the best ways for modern readers to develop an appreciation for Shakespeare is by discovering how frequently his works are reinvented by today's young adult authors. Heirs to Shakespeare puts the Bard into conversation with these authors and helps bring Renaissance drama to life. This innovative approach to curriculum design bridges the artificial gap between canonical authors and contemporary writers. At the same time, it demonstrates how reading for personal pleasure and reading Shakespeare can be complementary goals." "Readers will discover the inescapable intertextual connections between many modern young adult novels and Shakespeare's plays. They will gain a practical and concrete understanding of how modern authors talk about and respond to classic literature through the processes of revision and reinterpretation. Most of all, they will see why the works of Shakespeare are as relevant today as ever and why young adult novels can be as "significant" as Shakespeare."--Jacket
