I’m just curious what you think about this….a lot of classic literature is now in the public domain and there is a trend to rewrite these pieces of history. The idea is to update them to current time periods, spice them up more, or just make them better. Do you think this is a good idea?
I have my own opinion but it’s simply mine. I don’t want to discredit the talent of writers that do this because there are really talented and accomplished writers that have taken on the task and the end result may be very very good. I’m just a little concerned that if the original author knew, would that author approve? Of course, they’re deceased so can’t speak for themselves but still…there’s just something about it that makes me…uncomfortable.
What d’ya think?
