Modern Technology And… Its influence on classic literature Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; Whole misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, And the continuance of their parents' rage, Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. What if that… Looked like this? That was interesting. QuickTime™ and a H.264 decompressor are needed to see this picture. That was entertaining wasn’t it? Dramatic music playing Words flashing Tons of information all at once? Now how did you Feel Like it? about that? Dislike it? Did you pay more attention to the story? Less attention? And for my last example… QuickTime™ and a H.264 decompressor are needed to see this picture. Hmm… Different… More visual than auditory… but Music rather than words… But you didn’t need words, did ya? Again, same question: How do you feel? …about the piece … about its interpretation of the original work …about how you feel? Confused? Probably. Want to know what the hell I’m talking about?
