    I'm going to be starting coursework for A2 English Lang/Lit as soon as I get back to school. I need to do text transformations - e.g. in a poem someone mentions her brother. You could write a diary entry from that brother (except that the he is part of the event the person was writing about - so it's like a different perspective). Or a more specific example, updating Othello to modern times.

    Any ideas? I mean, particular texts, poems, novels.

    Things to Transform

    Anything by Shakespeare
    'Memoirs of a Geisha' Arthur Golden
    Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales'
    Milton's 'Paradise Lost'
    'Utopia' by Thomas Moore (to Tourist brochure??)
    'Gulliver's Travels'
    'The Big Sleep' Raymond Chandler
    'The Pilgrim's Progress' John Bunyan

    Style to Transform into

    Screenplay (Teenage Comedy, Action Adventure)
    Radio Serial
    Glossy Television Drama Script (a la '24'?)
    Epic Poem
    Newspaper Article
    Musical (with music??)
    Science Fiction Short Story/Novella
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
