Overview

When Hell is full, the dead will roam the Classics While scores of English teachers around the world ramble on about motifs, iambic pentameter, and deus ex machina, hordes of brain-swilling zombies and neck-chomping vampires are invading the major works of the world’s greatest authors! Now, Melville’s infamous creature of the deep is actually a zombie whale. And while Will Shakespeare’s rhyme scheme ties tongues in knots, Hamlet’s uncle has become a villainous vampire in royal robes. That sexy beast Arthur Dimmesdale in The Scarlet Letter? He’s even sexier and beastlier. . . . now that he’s a werewolf. Zombie Notes will quickly bring you up to speed on what lurks in the literary canon. A study guide to literature’s most famous scenes of love, heroism, brain letting, and countless decapitations, it is sure to reanimate your passion for the Great Books.

Editorial Reviews

The problem with most study note "cheaters" for literary classics is that with all their earnest wallowing in plot development and supposed tragic flaws, they don't pay proper attention to their real meat: the book's undead subtext. Dr. Laurie Rozakis, an English professor with more than 100 books to her credit, corrects that glaring fault with a vampire- and zombie-laced recap of masterworks including Hamlet, Moby-Dick, A Tale of Two Cities, and Huckleberry Finn. Sink your teeth into that; hilarious vengeful thoughts for reluctant readers.
