Shakespeare Noir

I knew there had to be a website called Shakespeare Noir and there is. (Here.) I wasn't sure what I would find there--reimaginings of plays as short, hard-boiled stories? Deconstruction of the drama from a noir-ish lens?
It turns out to be a site celebrating all sorts of manipulations of words, including poetry. Here's ow it's described on the home page:
Spoken Word,
Lyrical expression.
Verbal manipulation
Of thoughts and words
Which create thoughts and images
Which takes you to another world
Which it creates, but doesn’t really exist
Except within the poets mind
Thus leaving you blind
To the truth of it all.
Definitely worth checking out if you're a word-lover.
