Inspired by the flotsam of contemporary culture, journalism, and spam emails, this collection of poetry transforms Shakespeare’s sonnet sequence into a celebration of the possibilities of language unleashed. Shakespeare’s themes of fading beauty, posterity, immortality, and death find their modern-day responses in celebrity gossip, consumer products, vampirism, and the credit crunch. Dynamic and anarchic, this exploration sheds light on Shakespeare and the contemporary world in a disturbing yet entertaining manner.
