Thug Notes is a hilarious YouTube channel featuring Sparky Sweets, PHD. The videos give a humorous take on classic literary works, including this week’s examination of ‘Jane Eyre.’ The video has two components, the first focusing on plot summary and the second on analysis. Professor Sweets really makes the material come alive by using colorful language and relatable gangster slang. He narrates and also uses computer generated illustrations of the characters depicted as stick figures with speech bubbles, props and other animations.

Other interpretations include Catcher in the Rye, Great Expectations, Lord of the Flies, Pride and Prejudice, 1904, To Kill a Mockingbird, the Great Gatsby and Crime and Punishment.
