Early on, the women in Shakespeare’s works tended to be simple caricatures – shrews to be tamed or sweet little things with no discernible independent thought. As the great writer matured, however, his female characters did, as well. Take the heroine of Romeo and Juliet, whose inner thoughts and feelings were achingly revealed, who was every bit as courageous as Romeo and received equal billing in the title of the play.

We, with our time borne ceaselessly away / can heroes be, if just for one brief day.

Shakespeare, in this case, meets Davie Bowie’s “Heroes,” one of more than 100 classic pop songs reimagined by Erik Didriksen as 14-line, iambic pentameter Shakespearean sonnets. The New York musician started with an adaptation of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” in 2014, and since has tweaked the works of artists ranging from 50 Cent and Adele to Justin Bieber, Green Day and Drake.
