Explorations in Modern Reinterpretations: English 9

For this post, you’ll need to locate a modern retelling of an old story—legends, fairy tales, myths, biblical stories, Shakespeare: all of these qualify. Your retelling can be a novel (or a few chapters from a novel), a short story, a graphic novel, a children’s book or a poem, although for very short works please be aware that you will need to do a much closer analysis than students who choose a longer reading—i.e., be sure to include direct quotations and your interpretation of some of these. 308 more words
