That’s Ben Jonson on Shakespeare…and here’s what would be different if our favorite characters had smartphones:
King Lear: Your kids put you in a home? You should be so lucky!
Titus Andronicus (or, Guess Who’s Coming As Dinner?): Cannibalism is never the answer.
Romeo and Juliet: Check your messages before ingesting poison.
The Tempest: Wizards pretty much get to do whatever they want.
