What Do Shakespeare And Bad Vampire Fiction Have In Common?

What Do Shakespeare And Bad Vampire Fiction Have In Common?.

Okay Upworthy, I see you.  In this video John Green:

  1. Becomes my new internet crush.
  2. Explains (for the last time, guyz!!) why reading – and reading critically – is valuable.  (Hint: pluralism.)
  3. Decries authorial intent as the useless concept it is.
  4. Gives a succinct description of the differences between spoken and written language, once again making the case for grammar.

Not necessarily in that order.  Enjoy!
