A Shakespearean sonnet for a rather odd discussion from my teaching assistant days.
Shall I compare our modern life to his?
We are more technologically advanced
He knew so much, but not what iTunes is.
He never owned an iPod, though he danced.
Some time has passed, since Shakespeare walked the earth,
And often we forget how much has changed.
The electronic era and the birth
Of e-communications, he’d find strange.
It’s difficult for you to understand
That William had no electric light
To write by. That he wrote his plays by hand
Your words tell me you cannot grasp his plight
How do I know you haven’t got it yet?
“He must have had his music on cassette”
