Text Messaging The Classics
A London college professor has compressed the essential parts of classic literature into tidy mobile text messages to help students study for exams. For example, (from my interpretation) a message about Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations might read PipsASissyTheEnd.
Examples given in this BBC article include:
Hamlet: 2b? Nt2b?
Pride And Prejudice: 5Sistrs WntngHsbnds.
Jane Eyre: MadwyfSetsFyr2Haus
Personally, I think it’s cool. In a geeked out kind of way.
Can you recognize what these are from?
