Quotes

  • “From comedy to tragedy to sonnet, from texts to storms to prom, this collection is a knockout.”

    — BuzzFeed
  • “A must-read for theater kids…as well as Shakespeare skeptics who might be more willing to warm up to William if his story of star crossed lovers involved an incredibly high stakes text chain.”

    — Booklist
  • “This sumptuous anthology reframes Shakespeare’s work, linking themes to contemporary concerns while bringing a critical eye to the originals’ cultural assumptions.”

About the Authors

Dahlia Adler is an associate editor of mathematics by day, a contributor to the B&N Teen Blog by night, and a writer of kissing books at every spare moment in between. She lives with her husband and son in New York City.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875) was born in Odense, Denmark, the son of a poor shoemaker and a washerwoman. As a young teenager, he became quite well known in Odense as a reciter of drama and as a singer. When he was fourteen, he set off for the capital, Copenhagen, determined to become a national success on the stage. He failed miserably, but made some influential friends in the capital who got him into school to remedy his lack of proper education. In 1829 his first book was published. After that, books came out at regular intervals. His stories began to be translated into English as early as 1846. Since then, numerous editions, and more recently Hollywood songs and Disney cartoons, have helped to ensure the continuing popularity of the stories in the English-speaking world.
