For Your Amusement

Someone just showed this to me and I couldn’t resist posting it for your enjoyment. The video below comes from Thug Notes: Classical Literature, Original Gangster, which puts up a weekly video discussing and analyzing famous literary works, narrated by Sparky Sweets, PhD. There are some really great ones, including a video for The Great Gatsby, Hamlet, Moby-Dick, and many others. (The New York Times has a writeup here.) Here’s the video for Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (1899).
