    In 400-500 years time, nobody will be reading Twilight. Comparing Twilight to Shakespeare is like comparing a grain of salt to the sun. My newspaper is the guardian.

    I was so relieved to see so many negative ratings to the opening post.

    Twilight is not the modern day Shakespeare. Not at all. This is an example of why I refuse to buy the daily mail anymore. They must have a child writing their stories.

    Correction: Twilight has attempted to be a modern-day Shakespeare. And failed.

    There are loads of love triangles in Shakespeare, look at Midsummer Nights Dream, Twelfth Night
    The love triangle is too common a motif to make this a meaningful link.

    I'd say that the fact that Twilight isn't a play is probably a big draw-back to it being considered 'Modern Shakespeare'.

    How long do you expect such a piece of twaddle to last? Hell, even Graffiti has better style than twilight does.

    Yet Shakespeare is still considered the best author of all time, hundreds of years later.

    I agree with this, if you read past the simple love story there is a lot of substance and deep meanings behind twilight if you read into it who else agrees.

    What the **** is this bull****?! Twilight isn't on the same calibre as The Very Hungry Caterpillar (that book is made of win) let alone Shakespeare. Shakespeare's unprecedented impact inspired many authors, musicians and playwrights even GCSE and A Level English students like me acknowledge his credibility as a paramount figure of literature. Twilight however is the biggest load of *******s I've read in my life! The only demographic I can only think of who actually enjoy *shudders* Twilight is for 12 year old girls who only read it because their friends are doing it; these girls are ****ing sheep. Comparing Twilight to Shakespeare is essentially comparing: Ke$ha to Tempa T, Nicki Minaj to Nas and Chardinay to John Legend.

    I hate both the daily mail and twilight for a number of reasons. This post has now given me the chance to hate them simultaneously, so I thank you.

    One of the most annoying reasons I hate twilight is it's fanbase:
