The Letters to Dead People is a uniquely funny Tumblr site by a woman named Celine Song.

Song takes the exact thoughts of what we think of certain dead people and produces memes to coincide. Song addresses comments that we all seem to think such as Emily Bronte and her fondness of writing abusive men that are attractive to her lead characters. The results are sometimes hysterical, sometimes sweet, sometimes sad and sometimes sentimental. The memes are produced on a basic black and white color scheme, with the use of all capital letters.

The Letters to Dead People site is one that you can spend hours on. Song has created such a diverse collection of famous historical figures that an educational stroll down the path of history doesn’t seem too intangible.
