Summing up Robert Frost – “Out walking. Took a new path.”

Can you paraphrase a classic work of literature in just six words?

Our friends over at Table Talk in Salon have issued the challenge and some of the results are just hilarious.  Here are just a few examples.

The times were good. Also bad. (A Tale of Two Cities)

Soldier rushes fate, gets cocky, loses.  (Macbeth)

Be good. Precisely how is unclear. (The Bible (Old Testament))

Nothing happens. Then nothing happens again.  (Waiting for Godot)

There are a whole lot more over at Salon, why not take a look.
