Rewriting the Original

Flavorwire has compiled a list of authors who have rewritten classic stories (often with a twist) without ruining the original. Their examples include:

  • On Beauty by Zadie Smith – a retellling of Howards End
  • Weight by Jeanette Winterson – a reworking of the Atlas and Heracles myth
  • The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski – based on Hamlet
