Top 10 William Shakespeare adpatations

By Patricia Streeter,

If William Shakespeare was alive today, he would be 450 years old. Also, he would be shocked to see how many adaptations of his work exist today. If you are not a literature buff, you will be surprised to see how many films, plays, or television shows you watched that were inspired by him. In a way, Shakespeare is responsible for a lot of our entertainment today. It is a known fact that many industries take elements from each other to make something new. For a writer, numerous adaptations are the biggest form of flattery. Others are able to take your work to a place you did not think to go. New life is born from your original idea. If you have watched some of these productions before, I challenge you to read Shakespeare’s work. When you are done, go back and watch it again. See what themes stand out to you.
