Twitterature is here: Literary classics through tweets

TwitteratureThe World’s Greatest Books Retold Through Twitter, aka Twitterature, hit our doormat earlier this week.

A clever, yet bizarre little tome in which some of the most revered pieces of literature are cut up into 140-character chunks and spewed out at speed.

Thus, if you’ve never read, say Dante’s Inferno, you ‘may’ be able to work out what the plot is through tweets like this…

‘I’m being attacked by three theoretical beasts! I don’t think I’m in Italy any more!’

Other greats retold include Beowulf, Romeo & Juliet, Crime and Punishment and Metamorphosis
