Essay:Redwall - Facebook Style

LordTBT August 31, 2009 User blog:LordTBT

After reading about the new Penguin release Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don't Float: Classic Lit Signs on to Facebook by Sarah Schmelling, I knew immediately that Redwall needed to receive the Facebook lit treatment.

However, the route I went with this is not overly silly or modern (no characters having e-mail, watching movies, etc), it's more along the lines of viewing the story unfold on the Facebook News Feed, with a bit of whimsy thrown in too.

Adapting Redwall to this format and abridging the book was a very interesting and fun experience. It's quite fascinating how entire chapters can be broken down into 1 line of a Facebook occurence. Of course, to fully appreciate it you have to be familiar with the novel. This satire is meant in the spirit of fun.

Without further ado, I present Redwall - Facebook Style!
