These inspired authors have reimagined beloved novels and iconic characters in a fresh way. They delve deeply into these well-loved favorites and use them as jumping off points to explore new settings, eras, and characters. Here are eleven to read
"O, what a noble mind is here o'erthrown! The courtier's, soldier's, scholar's, eye, tongue, sword, Th' expectation and rose of the fair state, The glass of fashion and the mould of form, Th' observ'd of all observers, quite, quite down!" - (Ophelia ~ Hamlet, Act 3, scene 1, 150–154)
This amazing piece by James C. Christensen is my favorite print I have hanging on my walls. I grew up with this in my house and it inspired me to want to read all of the plays so I'd know how each is represented here. Can you name what scene portrays what play?
I love Shakespeare's plays. I have 2 pieces in my shop inspired by them. Would you like one? Or perhaps you would like a doll based on a character from your favorite pice of literature? Contact me....we'll talk.
