Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don’t Float

10 Apr

Clever. But the concept gets old fast.

Sarah Schmeling’s Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don’t Float: Classic Lit Signs on to Facebook is a good way to hook high school kids into literature, but it’s not a satisfying read once you get the premise.

Schmeling creates possible facebook posts for literary characters and authors like this one for Poe:

While it’s fun to see these posts, they soon get predictable. It’s almost like a book of knock knock jokes for the Great Books set. So I really couldn’t sit and read through this book. It’s more something you skim and pass around.
