"O gentlemen well-coifed! I thee entreat, to hither come and dance to this sick beat," Taylor Swift might have intoned were she an Elizabethan chanteuse, and here Erik Didriksen takes a hundred pop hits from Swift, Coldplay, Beyoncé, and beyond to give them a little hey-nonny-nonny with a thorough Shakespearean treatment. Imagine Sir Mix-a-Lot rapping "Baby's Got Back" in iambic pentameter, or rickrolling your friends with a 400-year-old version of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." An internet sensation, Didriksen's Pop Sonnets are a true labor of wit and affection, and this collection contains many lyrics hitherto unpublished.

"Didriksen brings an authentic dedication to craft and a lively sense of humor."—NPR
