Modern Day Classics: If Literature Logged On

By March 6, 2017Literature, The Classics

The world has changed so much through the years and many works of classic literature were written in a time that is unrecognisable today. But what if we brought the classics up to date and allowed literature to log on?

Well that’s exactly what Flipsnack did, reimagining classic novels in today’s digital age to hilarious results.

Here’s how today’s technology may have solved some of the problems some of our favourite protagonists faced.

Would Romeo and Juliet’s love have survived the temptations of Tinder? Maybe a more relaxed dating game would have meant a happier ending.

It’s unlikely Oliver Twist would have given his London workhouse a very good Trip Advisor review.

Famed for his creativity, Wonka might steal inspiration from Pinterest if he were here today and we’d love to see the fails.

Imagine how many people Holden could have called phoney if he’d had Twitter back in the day, proven to give angsty big kids somewhere to have tantrums. 😉

We’re not sure Lord of the Rings would have been quite the epic adventure if they’d had the help of Google Maps.

The White Rabbit could ensure he’s never late again with the help of Uber.

If you want a following, you just need Instagram and a cat, Aslan knows.

Thanks to Flipsnack for the laughs.
