"While Shakespeare's works are often viewed as boring and inapplicable to millennials, Pinterest can work as both a catalyst and enhancement for an appreciation and understanding of the Bard's works to this generation, specifically with two of his most prolific tragedies, Hamlet and Macbeth".

This is a photograph of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, holding each other's bloody faces and staring deeply into each other's eyes. They are absolutely covered in blood and look determinedly in love.
This source is relevant to my paper because it serves the purpose of attracting interest in the play. This isn't a typical image- it's attention-grabbing- and I found it on Pinterest under the simple search term "Macbeth".

This is an infographic describing the plot, action, characters, and simple analysis of Shakespeare's play "Hamlet".
This source is relevant because it is completely different from the other image I have cited, yet it was found on Pinterest and can aide, in different ways, in the understanding of "Hamlet", especially for those that have never read it before.
I was able to approach this person through Facebook. We were friends in high school (he dated/married one of my best friends) and he responded to my inquiry about three different images from Macbeth.
I was able to talk to Jacob about Macbeth because he simply responded to my Facebook post. He willingly offered his opinion about how the three images I posted would be useful to him in understanding Macbeth and which would entice him most to read the play, which he had never read before.
Much like Jacob, I was able to approach Brandon through Facebook.
I was able to talk to Brandon about Macbeth simply because he responded to my survey. The brief conversation I had with him was insightful because he was a self-described person who "never wants to read Shakespeare", and yet the images were so intriguing that he took the time to respond. I found this interesting on a research level.
