SparkNotes Tweets To Make Your Month!

While it may be the worst enemy to teachers, SparkNotes is a wondrous place on the internet where students – and all procrastinators on their reading alike – can go when they need a last-minute summary of the reading that should’ve been done the night before. (Just be prepared for when this go-to site for your literary needs slows down your computer.) And this special place can be further explored on their Twitter account as well!

So, here are some SparkNotes tweets that will surely brighten your day, whether you’ve actually read the books that are being referenced or you know just the gist of them to ace that pop quiz…

 

Just Taking A Stroll And Sporting Wood…

If you think back to your mandatory high school of Macbeth, it was clear why Macbeth suffered the fate he had: because he didn’t fully believe in the fate the witches gave him, which included a whole forest coming at him and invading the kingdom (i.e., soldiers infiltrating by covering themselves with pieces of bough). So, to honor that fate coming to fruition by the very skillful art of spacing, SparkNotes brings you this…

 

 

This is the kind of tweet you can’t help but relate to. You want to sneak up on somebody, but you don’t want them to know it’s you, so what do you do? You disguise yourself as a walking tree. I mean, it’s common sense, right??

 

 

It’s Not Always About You… Except In This Case

Oedipus’s downfall was his excessive pride, so of course, when he had to investigate just who was behind the king of Thebes’s death, he was accusing anybody who was even remotely suspicious, because he wanted the killer caught and brought to justice… basically making it about himself. Little did he know that it really was about himself, as shown in this tweet…

 

 

However, I think this could apply to anyone egotistic maniac who only cares about the attention on them, despite what it may cause to others in the process. If only Oedipus could’ve taken a hint and stepped down before the truth came out…

 

The Most Important Thing In Any Relationship Is…

Come on, struggling couples, you should know this, and the same should really have gone to basically all of Shakespeare’s characters when facing conflict, who generally choose to jump to conclusions first and ask questions later…

 

 

Had they known how to talk to each other instead of taking matters in their own hands, a lot of unnecessary deaths could’ve been prevented! I guess learning to communicate takes some people much more time than others…

 

 

With The Raven, It’s “Never-more”

If you’re single and ready to mingle, then here’s some advice: be on the lookout for this dark lad and stay away from him, for he is no good to anyone worthy of loving…

 

 

…unless you love ravens just for their company, then take the Raven in, and “nothing more.”

 

We All Grieve Differently

When losing a loved one, undeserved or not, everyone has a different way of coping, so no one would blame you at all if you just do what you need to do to get through it…

 

 

…except when you’re Hamlet. In that case, there should be a very clear line, and even if your loved one from the grave tells you to cross that line, taking out almost all the people close to you – and yourself – in the process, maybe don’t do it, lest you – and the loved ones you had left with you – want to join them on the other side.

 

 

Don’t Get Everything On The List

It’s officially 2020, so you know what that means: you’ve got five years to put together a Great Gatsby commemoration party to celebrate its 100th publication anniversary! You have to make sure that you’ve got a list of things to do and have for it in order to make it perfect…

 

 

Let’s just hope that we don’t have an exact repeat of the supreme rise and fall of the American economy during – and after – the Roaring Twenties…

(And FYI, the Dream is still alive. We just have to believe! All we have to do is to find the right person to have embody that dream for us and live for it… or find a person who would live that dream with us. Whichever works for you…)

 

When One Door Closes, Another One Opens… And That One Closes

Ever hear that saying? “When one door closes, another one opens”? Or maybe you heard it as: “When one door opens, a window opens”? In either way you know it, it’s different in this case when that thing that opens also closes. Remind you of anything? Well, I think you already knew the answer when you read the play being referenced in this grandest of all memes…

 

 

“For never was a story of more woe // Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” They just happened to open and close their doors at all the wrong times. And again – if I may bring up an earlier tweet on this list – if only they had communicated better…

So, on a much lighter note, since it’s National Compliment Day, here’s a surprise tweet – yes, a compliment – to complete this list, this time by our lovely Penguin Random House…
